Celebrating National Doctor’s Day this March
Most physicians decide upon a career in medicine because they want to make a difference in people’s lives. They are devoted to helping patients enjoy the highest quality of life possible through better healthcare. You can celebrate National Doctor’s Day this March to honor the physicians who have made a difference.
Each year, National Doctor’s Day is designated as March 30th. This tradition began in 1933, when Eudora Brown Almond decided to honor physicians on this day by mailing greeting cards and placing flowers on doctors’ graves. In 1958, the awareness day was made official by a resolution from the House of Representatives. And in 1990, legislation was passed to officially declare National Doctor’s Day on March 30th.
