A group of doctors showed they could operate pretty well on stage.

Twenty local physicians and health care professionals dressed to the nines for Effingham Health System’s first Men in Medicine fashion show.

After taking the stage to the song "It’s Raining Men," they modeled formal attire, hobby/recreation wear and professional attire in the show at the Effingham College and Career Academy.

The fashion show raised more than $1,200 for local women’s health and wellness initiatives, according to EHS.

Judges Lucy Powell, Beth Mosley and Mary Jane Brinson awarded trophies in four categories:

Best runway strut – Dr. Claude Sanks, Effingham Family Medicine at Guyton

Most original hobby wear – Z.T. Howard, physical therapy manager at EHS

Most fans in the audience – Durwin Logan, EHS pharmacist

Best model overall – Dr. John Bennett, Effingham Family Medicine at Port Wentworth.

The fashion show concluded a full day of EHS programs promoting women’s health, including a women’s expo, a health lecture by Dr. Toni Sylvester and the annual Lunch, Laugh and Learn program with Southern author Ronda Rich as this year’s guest speaker.
