Patrick Dempsey wears a lot of hats — those of actor, philanthropist, race car driver (it’s true; look it up), and as of Saturday’s Reunion Convocation, that of Bowdoin College honorary degree recipient. Of course, we’ve seen him wear an actual Bowdoin Hockey cap on his hit show, Grey’s Anatomy, on which he merely portrays a Bowdoin grad — Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd. Sunday, on National Cancer Survivors Day, Dempsey was on hand at the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing, which he helped found, at Central Maine Medical Center in his native Lewiston, again wearing a Bowdoin hat — and appearing in it during news coverage of the event. Watch it here.
