On May 1, LHSC, St. Joseph’s, the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) and health-care organizations across the province will recognize the extraordinary contributions of Ontario doctors by celebrating the 6th Annual Provincial Doctor's Day.
Every day, more than 320,000 patients across the province are treated and cared for by doctors. Whether it’s in a hospital, a long-term care home, a clinic or at a patient’s home, Ontario’s doctors make a positive difference in the lives of patients by providing the highest quality of care.
Building on last year’s success, children, who are some of our bravest and most inspiring patients, will play an integral role in celebrating. From now until May 15, elementary school children and pediatric patients will have the opportunity to colour and fill out a personalized message on a “What my MD means to me” activity sheet. Pictures returned to the OMA will be included in their Doctors’ Day celebration and may be featured on their social media channels. For each picture returned, the OMA will donate $1 to the Canadian Red Cross Society.
All Ontarians can recognize doctors via social media by tweeting using the hashtags #LoveMyMD or #PatientsFirst. You can also leave a comment on any of our Doctors’ Day Facebook posts on our Facebook page.
