National Doctor's Day
Date When Celebrated : Always March 30
National Doctor's Day was created to show appreciation to your doctors. Doctors perform vital diagnosis, treatment and care for yourself and your family. When you are well, your doctor keeps you well. When you are sick, there is no other person more important to you than your doctor.
Hallmark suggests you send your doctors a card of appreciation. (it's no surprise to hear this from Hallmark). Card companies have cards for this event....no surprise here, either!
We suggest you simply tell your doctor(s) that you appreciate all that they do for you and your health. If you don't see your doctor today, make a note to thank him(or her) at your next appointment. You can also send them an Ecard.
Origin of "National Doctor's Day":
Doctors' Day observances date back to March 30, 1933. It was started by Eudora Brown Almond of Winder, Ga. The day marks the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery. The first National Doctor's Day was celebrated in 1991.
On March 30, 1958, the United States House of Representatives adopted a resolution commemorating Doctors' Day. In 1990, the congress and the senate approved legislation establishing National Doctors Day. The resolution designating March 30 as National Doctors' Day was signed by President George Bush.
