Giving Back

Kermitt Wright has had more than his fair share of health problems, from cancer and heart surgery to gallbladder removal. Now in remission, he’s giving back by serving as a patient advisor for the hospital. Once a month, Wright speaks to the new employee orientation class at AAMC.

“I tell them to be the best people they can be in this job,” says the 60-year-old, who was born and raised in Annapolis.

“Sometimes you’ll run into patients who are dealing with some heart-wrenching situations. Always remember: You have the power to make their day.”
