March 30, which is designated National Doctor’s Day, was established to recognize physicians, their work and their contributions to their community. Please join us as we wish our physicians–Dr. Alan Martinez, Dr. William Ziegler and Dr. Virginia Mensah, left to right–a Happy National Doctor’s Day.
This day was first observed on March 30, 1933, in Winder, Georgia. The wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, Eudora Brown Almond, wanted to have a day 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, in fact, is the symbolic flower for National Doctor’s Day.
On National Doctor’s Day this Saturday, give thanks to the doctors in your life. The organization National Today suggests you recognize the hard work and dedication that physicians demonstrate each day. Send your doctor an appreciation card or email, donate to your local medical center, or even nominate your doctor for an award. With nearly 700,000 people working as physicians and surgeons across the United States, your doctor would be thrilled to know that their hard work has been valuable to your health.
Our doctors have helped hundreds of couples achieve their dream of having a family. If an RSCNJ doctor has helped your family, please share your experience with us.
