The red carnation has long been the symbol of Doctors' Day. It denotes the qualities of love, charity, sacrifice, bravery and courage. We know Indiana physicians model those qualities.
Recently, many ran to aid the victims of tornadoes that struck our southern counties. They unselfishly rendered whatever care they could. They treated blunt force trauma, removed nails from aching feet, gave tetanus shots and ensured the food that arrived was safe for people to eat.
Many others deliver charity care and healing in their communities all year. While we can’t deliver you each a red carnation, we can let you know we are proud.
To you, we extend a heartfelt THANK YOU.
