Doctors' Day is coming up quickly on March 30. Given what healthcare professionals have endured through COVID, this Doctor's Day is an especially great opportunity to celebrate the doctors, surgeons, nurses, and physicians who helped us through it. The holiday is marked by delivering greeting cards and the traditional red carnations. It's also a marketing opportunity to touch in and thank healthcare professionals for their contributions. There's still time!
The History of Doctors Day
We can credit Eudora Brown Almond, a doctor's wife in Georgia, for the founding of Doctor's Day. She believed her husband and other physicians deserved more recognition for their hard work. The first observed Doctors' Day occurred on March 30, 1933. Almond sent greeting cards to doctors, and their wives laid flowers on the graves of deceased physicians. The flowers were perky red carnations and became a tradition when the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate officially approved the resolution to create the holiday. And, on October 30, 1990, George W. Bush signed the legislation into law to make it a legal holiday.
Healthcare Observances present unique opportunities to reach out and recognize your customers. So, don't let Doctor's Day pass you by.
