What is National Doctors’ Day?
Part one of The Cooper Foundation’s five-part blog series honoring our physicians.
Throughout the year, almost everyone needs medical attention from a physician. Some of that attention might save us from pains now, some might save us from complications later, and well… some might just save our lives.
The duty of physicians to provide care to the best of their abilities at all times is not a light one.
We celebrate National Doctors’ Day every year on March 30 as a chance for untold millions of Americans to give thanks and show appreciation for physicians who’ve exercised their duty to provide such medical attention, from the routine to the miraculous.
Following the worst days of a halting and haunting global pandemic, continuing through a period of alert diligence, and marching into an unknown future, we celebrate 90 years of National Doctors’ Day with a renewed appreciation for physicians executing their duties for humankind.
From managing the pandemic, to guiding us through a return to normalcy, to boldly accepting the challenges of health delivery now and beyond, Cooper University Health Care’s physicians remain the collective backbone for health and patient care in South Jersey.
