March 30 is Doctor's Day. This national day of recognition honors physicians for their ability to comfort and heal through unsurpassed skill and dedication. Few professions in the world require the constant commitment and compassion that is necessary of doctors every workday of their lives.
To recognize the accomplishments of our outstanding clinicians, Gundersen donated to 31 food pantries in locations that serve our regional communities and to the WAFER Food Pantry and The Hunger Task Force in La Crosse for a total donation of $19,500.
Whether you regularly visit or work in a doctor's office, mark your calendar for March 30 and take time to express thanks and appreciation for all that doctors do!
