May 1 is National Physicians Day.
Creating Together board, staff, parents and families would like to extend our deepest gratitude for all of our physicians and health teams. Across the country, lights will be turned on at 9pm to shine a light on our gratitude, for all they do.
We’d like to share the sentiments of Sandy Buchman, president of the Canadian Medical Association, as she so succinctly mirrors our gratitude and appreciation for the work and sacrifices made on our front lines by the medical profession:
“This year, perhaps more than ever, we are reminded of the dedication of physicians and all health professionals who are fighting COVID-19 alongside policy makers and the public.
This pandemic has been a stark reminder of the commitment of physicians from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Facing unprecedented circumstances and anxiety, physicians are leading the public health response, caring for those afflicted by COVID-19, and sustaining our health care system.
Today, let’s reflect on the work and sacrifices made by physicians and, most importantly, express our most sincere appreciation for the care they provide in normal and in extraordinary times. Physicians embrace the medical profession as a calling – and this rings truer now more than ever.”
So families, tonight at 9pm, we ask that you turn your light on, to shine a light for our incredible medical teams.
