Happy President’s Day!

Today is President’s Day in the US and so my kids are off school and some of you are off work. Although, in healthcare holidays always come with mixed feelings. I actually like that in Canada today is family day. I’m not sure the traditions of family day, but I like the idea of having a family day.

While we’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled health IT content for President’s Day, I always think it’s fun to share some popular quotes from US presidents on President’s Day. I hope you enjoy this and they cause you to stop and think a bit.
