Origin of "National Doctors Day"
National Doctors 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.
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 Doctors 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.
As a community let's let all our physicians know now much we appreciate them
