I'm sure you all know that John Douglass' better half, Laurie, is a medical doctor practicing pediatric neurology at Boston Medical Center.   BMC has a publication, The BMC News, which reaches thousands of workers and patients associated with the hospital.   In a recent article about Palliative Care at BMC, Laurie was quoted comparing the mission of the hospital and Rotary:
"BMC starts with a great foundation. Pretty much everyone who works here does so for the mission. The [Rotary Club’s] motto is, ‘service above self,’ and I think that's BMC. It’s very easy to be inspired by each other because the next story is better than the one you just heard. But our colleagues don't do it for the glory. They really do it for the good."
Laurie Douglass, MD, pediatric neurology.
Thank you, Dr. Laurie, and your medical provider colleagues, for all your selfless service during this public health emergency.
