Dear Alumnae and Friends,
Today and during this unprecedented time in the United States and across the world, we salute the strength and the fortitude of physicians, many of whom are serving at the heart of this global effort.
It is a special day to remember and honor doctors who are part of our alumnae community. National Doctors Day honors the professionals for their dedication and contributions to society and the greater community. Their dedication puts the patient first every time. On National Doctors Day, we say “thank you” to our sister alumnae and all who are physicians for all that they do for us and for our loved ones. The red carnation is commonly used as the symbolic flower for National Doctors Day.
At the AADC, we are following all of the precautions and guidelines regarding reducing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected our alumnae community and the world. We care about the health and safety of all members of our sisterhood and their families. In addition to doctors, we salute all of our alumnae who are battling this pandemic as health care workers and others on the front lines.
Stay healthy, stay at home, stay strong and stay hopeful.
