"National Doctor's Day": March 30th
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.
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.
