“May 1 is an important day to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of physicians throughout Alberta and across the country. 

“Physicians have a critical role in keeping Albertans healthy and building a strong health-care system. Particularly during this unprecedented public health emergency, physicians’ commitment to keeping Albertans safe and healthy is not taken for granted and is deeply appreciated.

“Alberta’s health-care system is open, and if Albertans have any questions or concerns about changes in their health, they should not hesitate to reach out to their doctor.

“Albertans can be confident knowing they are cared for by dedicated physicians. Alberta’s government remains committed to working with physicians to ensure Albertans continue to benefit from high-quality health care in this province.

“On National Physicians’ Day, Alberta’s government joins all Albertans in expressing sincere gratitude to physicians for their dedication to patients in Alberta.”
