PhysicianOne Urgent Care Honors Educators With Thank a Teacher Giveaway

Students can send a virtual “thank you” to honor an educator who has made a difference in their life and have a chance to win a donation for their school district

BROOKFIELD, CT, September 5, 2017

As summer winds down, parents, children, and teachers are preparing for a new school year – and all the emotions that go along with it. Excitement, anticipation and hope for a new start, with simultaneous feelings of nervousness, anxiety and unease about a new and unfamiliar experience. PhysicianOne Urgent Care is no stranger to helping turn feelings of unease and anxiety around for their patients. This September, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is honoring local educators and coaches who help students navigate these feelings every day, through a “Thank a Teacher” contest.

During the month of September, community members may submit their “thank you” to the educator who has made a difference in their lives, be it a teacher, coach or administrator. After submitting the digital “thank you,” the recognized educator will receive a personalized thank you email, and will also be entered to win a Dunkin’ Donuts® gift card. Each “thank you” also counts as one vote for the educator’s school district. The school district with the most nominations will receive a donation from PhysicianOne Urgent Care for the 2017-2018 school year.

“We are happy to support the educators in our communities who help their students tackle challenges and offer reassurance. Similarly, our experienced providers and clinical staff go beyond practicing high-quality medicine, as patients often walk into our centers feeling nervous and needing reassurance that we care and will help them feel better,” said Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, PhysicianOne Urgent Care co-founder and Chief Medical Officer. “We are proud to be able to offer an exceptional experience that supports every patient beyond their broken bone or new and scary symptom.”

This was the fastest, easiest, and best doctor's visit. The provider was extremely kind and helpful. I explained my symptoms, the provider asked a few followup questions, and then she issued a script. I will absolutely be using this service again and would recommend to anyone.
