Doctors’ Day

Dr. Slayton and his former patient, Fletcher Huddleston, share a "high-five". Text reads, "Doctors Day" and "If you could tell your doctor one thing, what would it be?"

Fletcher Huddleston thanks Dr. Slayton for saving his life.

When Fletcher was 5 years old, he endured a year of treatment for his leukemia. Watch as he gives a surprise to his physician, William Slayton, M.D., UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital chief of pediatric hematology/oncology.

This Doctors’ Day, we invite you to make a gift in honor of your UF Health physician and write a special message of appreciation. We will deliver your message to your physician in celebration of Doctors’ Day on Monday, March 30.

Your gift of any amount will honor that special physician who has cared for you, as well as support the most critical needs of the hospital.
