NEMG observes National Women Physicians Day

Northeast Medical Group observed National Women Physicians Day (NWPD) Feb. 3, 2021. First celebrated in 2016, NWPD honors female doctors nationwide and the advances they have made since Elizabeth Blackwell, MD, became the U.S.’ first licensed woman physician. This year’s observance was noteworthy as it marked Dr. Blackwell’s 200th birthday.

“On behalf of everyone at Northeast Medical Group, Yale New Haven Health System and our patients, thank you to all of our women physicians for the exceptional, patient-centered care and high level of commitment you provide each day,” said Prathibha Varkey, MBBS, NEMG president and CEO. “We are proud to work side-by-side with you.”
