NATIONAL PHYSICIANS WEEK 2021
Please join Physicians Working Together as we commemorate our 6th annual National Physicians Week during the week of March 25-31, 2021.
As our nation faced the cumbersome threat of COVID 19, the world recognized the sacrifice, dedication, and honor of healthcare workers. The sentiment helped us work through perils on the frontlines.
In 2015, Family Medicine Physician Dr. Kimberly Jackson founded Physicians Working Together (PWT) and in 2016 launched National Physicians Week (NPW) held from March 25-31. Each year NPW is dedicated to celebrating physicians across the country. We gather in celebration this year to encourage physicians, healthcare workers, and communities to get on one accord to help us end the coronavirus pandemic. PWT provides a platform where doctors can combine efforts and foster healthy physician relationships through collaboration and genuine camaraderie. Physicians Working Together members sending a message during National Physicians Week 2021 to lead by example and educate our communities on the safety and importance of getting vaccinated.
The development of the COVID-19 vaccine has given us hope, but we cannot heal from the pandemic if we fail to get shots in the arms of Americans. We understand the fear and reluctance of many about the newly developed serum. As healthcare professionals, we trust the science and the empirical data that supports the COVID-19 vaccine. Increased insights into immunology and modern technology have helped us get here in record time.
According to Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, about 70% to 85% of the US population should be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 before the country can begin to return to a sense of normalcy.
Physicians Working Together is a non-profit organization focused on CONNECTING, COLLABORATING, and CARING for physicians, medical students, and the communities served.
#ThisIsOurShot to educate, become stronger healthcare leaders in our communities, and work together to heal our nation. Together we can find a path to living in our new normal. Please join us in sharing this message of hope. Physicians, please share your vaccination social media posts with us on Instagram or Facebook. (@physiciansworkingtogether) We will include your photos in our National Physicians Week campaign. Visit us at best2gether.org.

Physicians Working Together celebrated the 5th anniversary of it's annual National Physicians Week during the week of March 25-31, 2020!
As physicians, we dedicate our lives to taking care of others. Our #Best2Together campaign is a call to action for all physicians and medical students to gather in unity to uplift and celebrate each other as brothers and sisters in medicine. When we work together, we stand to have a greater impact on the livelihood of medicine.
Physicians Working Together is poised to eliminate the isolating issues that we face as physicians. Our mutual support for each member will strengthen our ability to provide quality patient care. Click the link below to learn more about our current initiatives.
We'd like to thank Dr. Maiysha Clairborne for her partnership during NPW in Atlanta, Georgia. PWT and Stress-Free Mom Md invited fellow physicians to step from beyond the white coat to take a moment to fellowship, network, share ideas, and celebrate their milestones. We connected with our old friends and we made a few new ones too!
National Physicians Week was not always a week. Rather, this celebration merely lasted a day. Here and gone within 24 hours. But physicians are on the clock longer than that. And, during that time, it’s not your typical romanticized Grey’s Anatomy love and happiness with action in between. This action is constant. This action is in the emergency room, the private room of a private practice or free clinic, even in the office. It’s long nights and long days that seem everlasting – sacrificing personal time to help those in need every part of the day.
And so, National Physicians Week was created to extend the time to acknowledge and appreciate those in the line of duty for just a little longer. 2018 marks the third year of the extended celebration.
