National Doctors’ Day was first observed on March 30, 1933. Originally known solely as Doctors’ Day, the holiday was created when Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to set aside a day to honor physicians. To commemorate the day, greeting cards were mailed and flowers placed on the graves of deceased doctors.
Back in 2006 the National Doctors’ Day organization was created when a website dedicated to providing support for the day was launched. The organization has since branched out to include many specific products and services to assist office managers and hospital administrators with gift ideas for their doctors as well as many free resources to plan and celebrate this national holiday.
Each year the organization also releases a new greeting card specifically for honoring physicians. This year’s card cover reads “For Making Every Day Count…” and the inside reads “Thank You, Happy Doctors’ Day”. You can order the greeting card for all of your favorite physicians here!
In addition to your greeting card, gift cards make the perfect gift to honor your doctors. GiftCard Partners offers a variety of gift card brands that everyone loves.
This year National Doctors’ Day is Monday March 30th. How do you plan on honoring the physicians that play such a crucial role in the lives of you and your family?
