In 1933, a Georgia county's medical alliance proclaimed March 30 as “Doctors’ Day,” to recognize physicians for their work, and contributions to patients and their communities. The day was celebrated by mailing cards to physicians and their wives, and by placing flowers on the graves of deceased doctors. The observance was officially signed into law in 1990.
On this day, the ISMA pays tribute to its members who not only provide care to patients each day but serve as positive role models in every community. Your life commitment involves caring and advocating for patients, young and old and in between.
Thank you for your dedication to the health of all Hoosiers.
