    The hard work of Cambridge's physicians will be recognized May 1 for Doctors’ Day.


    On that day, Doctors4Cambridge is urging people, including local dignitaries and business owners, to show their support by visiting and downloading a ‘heart’ which they can clip out and display the week of April 26 and share on social media using the hashtag #DoctorsDay.

    “At no other time in history have we come to realize how important our healthcare professionals are,” says Cambridge Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Greg Durocher, in a news release.

    “Doctors have a choice, to practice here or nearly anywhere else. I’m thankful they chose Cambridge; we’re all thankful they chose Cambridge.”

    Besides using their ‘heart’ for selfies, participants are also encouraged to place them in the window of their businesses, homes or vehicles. There will also be signs around the community promoting Doctors’ Day including at local medical clinics and outside Cambridge Memorial Hospital. You can also look for notices announcing Doctors’ Day on several electronic billboards.

    “This has been an incredible and stressful year for our local medical community and we’re hoping by sharing these images we will show them how much we appreciate their continued hard work and personal sacrifices in keeping us safe and healthy,” says physician recruitment co-ordinator Donna Gravelle.

    “Showing them how important they are to our community is something that means a great deal to our dedicated physicians.”

    Doctors’ Day is recognized annually by the Ontario Medical Association, the Province of Ontario and health-care organizations provincewide as a way to acknowledge the extraordinary contributions of Ontario doctors, said the release.
