Year 2 Kickoff
January 29, 2016
For the second year, we, NC Doctors’ Day, are shining a light on our state’s great doctors and their grateful patients.
Our homegrown celebration was a huge success last year, with over 140 doctors across the state being nominated for the NC Doctor of the Year Award. The Award is presented to the physician who garners the most online votes by March 30, and comes with a $5,000 check to be used to further a professional cause or project to help their community.
The nomination phase begins on Monday, Feb. 1. Tell your story and why this doctor should be named NC Doctor of the Year. Go to the “Nominate” page on the site to submit a nomination. Nominations close on March 4. You are allowed to submit multiple doctors.
On March 18, the 10 finalists for 2016 NC Doctor of the Year will be posted and online voting will begin. Voting ends on March 27, and on March 30, the winner will be announced and presented with their prize. Last year’s winner was Gloria Graham, MD, a dermatologist in Morehead City who has been practicing for over 50 years.
