National Doctor’s Day Is March 30!

March 29, 2012

National Doctor’s Day is celebrated annually on March 30 to show appreciation to doctors. The holiday dates back to 1933 when Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a doctor, decided to honor physicians like her husband. She sent greeting cards to physicans and placed flowers on the graves of doctors who had passed away. Her display of recognition proved to be very powerful! The U.S. Congress established a National Doctor’s Day almost 60 years later!

 

Celebrate National Doctor's Day!


Fun Fact: The date for National Doctor’s Day is the anniversary of the first use of general anesthetic in surgery.

 

If you forgot that tomorrow is National Doctor’s Day, don’t worry! There’s still time to send a free ePraise, or write a handwritten thank you note , like Eudora Brown Almond. The simple and genuine expression of appreciation in a note can be mean more than any expensive gift!
