TMA Alliance: Celebrate Doctors' Day

Celebrate Doctors' Day!

Doctors' Day is a celebration begun by the  Southern Medical Association Alliance  adopted in 1935 to honor members of the medical profession. It is now observed nationwide to commemorate a significant day in medical history: It was on March 30, 1842, that Dr. Crawford W. Long, a Georgia physician, first used ether as an anesthetic agent in a surgical operation, thereby providing mankind with pain-free surgery.

Alliances across the state of Texas honor their physicians in many ways. The TMA Alliance offers tray cards to distribute at hospitals and physicians' offices to let patients know that there is a special day set aside to honor and thank physicians. If you would like to order tent cards, you can access the order form here . If you have any questions, please contact Sandy Solis, (800) 880-1300 ext. 1328 or email Sandy Solis.
