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.”
