This year our own Dr Mary Gregory received the Health Care Practitioner Award. This recognition is given to an individual who has operated at an exceptional level in their field of practice. There is no doubt that Dr. Gregory filled the requirements for this honor because of her passion and energy in promoting healthy vision development for children.
Dr. Mary Gregory and her husband, Dr. Dan Gregory, attended the awards event, held at the Minneapolis Marriott Center. Mary Lahammer, program host and political reporter for Twin Cities Public Television, was the event emcee.
The other two finalists in Dr Gregory’s category were Dr. Yoav H. Messinger, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and Gwen Verchota, Care Delivery Manager, virtuwell.
“As I sat in that room with hundreds of my peers I realized what an impressive group of professionals exist in Minnesota. It was an honor to part of this group of progressive and innovative individuals,” stated Dr. Gregory.
“Then, to hear my name announced as winner was so completely unexpected that I was stunned. I hadn’t even prepared an acceptance speech!”
We at Uptown Eye Care are so very proud to be able to work with, learn from, and be inspired by a doctor whose passion for her profession and love for people has led her to serve this community.
Congratulations, Dr. Mary Gregory!
