"My GHHS pin is such a prized possession because it is something that represents what I believe are the most important qualities of being a physician (or truly any health care provider): compassion, honesty, and dedication to the patient. It is an honor given to me by my peers which makes it infinitely more significant in my book." -   Dr. Paul Elsberned, GHHS member
