“Every day, physicians go above and beyond to care for their patients and build a stronger health care system. Their dedication puts the patient first time and again. 

On National Physicians Day, we thank our physicians for all that they do for us and our loved ones.

This year, more than ever, we are reminded of the dedication of our health professionals who are fighting COVID-19 alongside policymakers and the public. They are pulling long hours and working round the clock as the world is gripped by this pandemic.

We are sincerely grateful for the care they provide in normal and in extraordinary times. Physicians embrace the medical profession as a calling – and this rings true now, more than ever.”
