Doctors’ Day

Doctors' Day Celebration

The annual Doctors’ Day celebration is one of TAPRO’s signature events, bringing together hundreds of distinguished health professionals from around the Greater Houston area. Each year, a prominent member of the medical community delivers the keynote address, presenting a significant current issue in the field of healthcare. Another highlight of this event is the TAPRO Award, which is presented to an influential doctor from the medical community who has made major contributions to health sciences. The Doctors’ Day celebration promotes networking and collaboration, as guests find a wonderful opportunity to meet new healthcare professionals while enjoying a delicious meal together. Entertainment for the evening includes live music and a raffle for special door prizes.

We look forward to seeing you at our next Doctors’ Day celebration.
