National Doctors’ Day is a special day reserved once a year to publicly honor physicians for the good work they do for their patients and the community.
Now, more than ever, amid the Coronavirus pandemic, we need to thank our Doctors, Nurses, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists and everyone working in the medical field.
Your donation on National Doctors’ Day will support our Medical Education Program, which teaches medical students and others about the range of natural responses to death and grief. Our grief experts and support group alumni help these students to be emotionally present and communicate with empathy when having conversations with patients and their families.

“I think the whole experience was a good reminder to not shy away from the pain just because we want to avoid feeling those feelings, but rather that we might be one of only a few people that the patient is able to talk about their grief with.”
Medical professionals need our encouragement and support more than ever during this difficult time. The people you choose to honor will be uplifted by your acknowledgment. Additionally, your donation is vitally important to sustain the services of OUR HOUSE during this difficult time.
