What Is Doctor's Day?
March 30th marks the annual observance of Doctor's Day, an opportunity to raise awareness about the active roles physicians play in our community, to say thanks, and to reflect on their hard work and dedication. From the family practitioners who quietly treat their patients every day to the specialists who care for patients with special needs, all physicians deserve our recognition.
Who is Sponsoring this Local Recognition?
The Medical Foundation of Chattanooga, Chattanooga and Hamilton County Medical Society, Project Access and WDEF News 12 have joined together to recognize and thank some of the many Doctors who live and work in our community.
