March 30th is National Doctors’ Day, and we’re sharing our love for the physicians who care for all of us – especially during this challenging time!
About National Doctors’ Day
On March 30, 1933, Eudora Brown Almond of Winder, Georgia, began a tradition to honor physicians like her husband, Dr. Charles B. Almond. She encouraged others to show appreciation by mailing cards to their doctors and by laying red carnations on the graves of deceased doctors.
March 30th was a historically fitting choice for this holiday, as March 30, 1842, was the first time ether anesthetic was administered for surgery. In 1991, President George H.W. Bush made the date official by proclaiming March 30th National Doctors’ Day, and we’ve been celebrating ever since.
We Appreciate Our Doctors!

And we see the sacrifices physicians continue to make, especially amid this global pandemic.
