Students at Carolyn Wenz Elementary School recently participated in a special art project to show appreciation to Paris physicians on National Doctors’ Day, which is March 30.
Wenz third, fourth, and fifth graders– taught by Jessica Mayhugh, art teacher–presented doctors with artwork they created, which read: “Thank You Paris Doctors For Making Us Feel Better.” The artwork is displayed in the hallway near the main entrance to the Paris Family Medical Center.
“National Doctors’ Day honors physicians for the work they do for their patients, the community, and for society as a whole,” said Cindy Belt, Paris Community Hospital physician relations manager. “We encourage everyone to take a moment and think about our physicians – the lives saved, the lives improved, and the care given. Doctors don’t always hear those two little words, ‘thank you.’ We invite you to make it a point on March 30 to give a big thank you to our physicians.”
Doctors’ Day was first observed in Winder, Ga., on March 30, 1933. It was originally started by Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a prominent Georgian doctor, who wanted to create a day to recognize and honor physicians. In 1990, legislation was introduced in the House and Senate to establish a National Doctors’ Day. Following overwhelming approval, Pres. George Bush designated March 30 as “National Doctors’ Day."
