Thank a Doctor Today!

March 30th is National Doctor’s Day!

National Doctor’s Day was created to show appreciation to physicians for their leadership in the prevention and treatment of illness and injury. The first Doctor’s Day was celebrated on March 30, 1933, when the wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond set the day aside to honor physicians everywhere. This was the anniversary of the first time general anesthetic was used in surgery. In 1990, President George Bush officially declared March 30th as “National Doctor’s Day”.
