On Monday, March 30, please take a moment to give thanks to all the doctors in your life—including RSCNJ Physicians, Dr. William Ziegler and Dr. Alan Martinez. You won’t be alone—March 30 is National Doctor’s Day, which was created to recognize physicians, their work and their contributions to their community.
First observed on March 30, 1933, in Winder, Georgia, the day was conceived by the wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, Eudora Brown Almond, who wanted to honor physicians. On that first day, she encouraged supporters to mail cards and put flowers on the graves of deceased doctors. The red carnation has become the symbolic flower for National Doctor’s Day.
You can recognize the hard work and dedication that physicians demonstrate each day by sending your doctor an appreciation card or email, donating to your local medical center or nominating your doctor for an award. Your doctor will surely appreciate knowing that their hard work has been valuable to your health.
Please join us as we wish Dr. Ziegler and Dr. Martinez a Happy National Doctor’s Day.
