The Direct Primary Care World Loses a Great Doctor

It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the passing of Dr. J Bryan Hill. The DPC world is very close and when we lose a member of our family it hurts. Dr. Hill was a great friend, teacher, colleague, husband, father, and mentor. The Anderson, SC community is heartbroken and is trying to cover his clinic for a short time as best as they could. If there are any pediatricians who want to help them, please comment below.

Here is the story that mentions Dr. Hill.

    It was exceptionally difficult to “respond” to this email. My program kept going “somewhere else.” I worked at MCG for about 10 years and didn’t know about Dr Hill. I did have some responsibility for the neuroanatomy class at MCG. I invited a GP to come to the school as part of the “neuroanatomy” class. I would ask him if the students were “wasting their time” by studying neuroanatomy. His answer was explain to the students how important the class was to the curriculum!
