Today is National Doctors’ Day, and I want to thank physicians for all they do and are doing to help us in this pandemic.

I also want to  extend the day to thank all of the other health care professionals, from nurses, aides, technicians, emts, and to anyone else I may have forgotten to include.

You are our contemporary heroes.

I humbly thank you.
