Say ‘Thank You’ to Portland’s Medical Professionals During National Physicians Week

March 25-31 is National Physicians Week, a time to reflect on the dedication, skill, and profound contributions of medical professionals to our quality of life. Physician burnout, which was already high, rose significantly during the pandemic.
