#WorldHealthDay Trends #1 on Twitter, World Shows Gratitude

Just a little more than one week ago, on March 30, the US cheered medical professionals during National Doctors Day. Now the gratitude continues on a global scale, with the World Health Organization honoring the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, on World Health Day.

In a statement from its website, the WHO explained the need for World Health Day, particularly now.

"Nurses and other health workers are at the forefront of COVID-19 response - providing high-quality, respectful treatment and care, leading community dialogue to address fears and questions and, in some instances,Β  collecting data for clinical studies. Quite simply, without nurses, there would be no response."

On Twitter, #WorldHealthDay has taken on a larger message, acknowledging and honoring nurses and midwives, but also all healthcare workers as the industry works 24/7 to provide care for an unrelenting virus. Here's a sample of the digital gratitude.
