National Doctor’s Day

March 30, 2016

In honor of American Physicians, the Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution, has designated March 30th as National Doctors Day.  (A proclamation by George Bush in 1991)  The day-to-day work of healing conducted by physicians throughout the United States has been shaped, in large part, by great pioneers in medical research.  Many of those pioneers have been Americans.  Indeed, today we gratefully remember physicians such as Dr. Daniel Hale Williams and Dr. Charles drew, who not only advanced their respective fields but also brought great honor and pride to their fellow Black Americans.  We pay tribute to doctors such as Albert Sabin and Jonas Salk whose vaccines for poliomyelitis helped to overcome one of the world’s most dreaded childhood diseases.  We also recall the far-reaching humanitarian efforts of Americans such as Dr. Thomas Dooley, as well as the forward-looking labors of pioneers such as members of the National Institutes of Health, who are helping to lead the Nation’s fight against AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening diseases.  These and other celebrated American physicians have enabled mankind to make significant strides in the ongoing struggle against disease.
