During this unprecedented time of healthcare crisis, it is more fitting than ever to celebrate the medical professionals who risk their lives in order to help others. Doctors' Day recognizes all doctors whose everyday mission is to save lives and drive progress towards advancement of healthcare technologies.
March 30th is the anniversary of the first time a doctor used ether anesthesia, an achievement that has proven invaluable in the field of modern medicine. It is only fitting that today be Doctors' Day, during which everyone is encouraged to thank doctors in your life, and those on the front lines of this pandemic, exposing themselves to illness in order to better the lives of their patients.
We are thankful everyday, but especially now, for all of the work that doctors provide to ensure that patients are healthy and safe.
