Celebrate National Doctors' Day Saturday March 30

By March 30, 2013

Follow me on:

Did you know that physicians have their own national holiday? Each year physicians are recognized on March 30, also known as National Doctors' Day.

Doctors' Day 2013 is today, Saturday March 30.  If you work with physicians, or if you are a patient, be sure to wish your physician a Happy Doctors' Day today! If you are a physician, hopefully your co-workers and hospital administration have something planned to help make it a special day to recognize all of your hard work caring for others.

What is the history of National Doctors' Day? How, and why, did National Doctors' Day come into existence? Doctors' Day actually originated in my home state of Georgia.  An article from a local Georgia newspaper provides some interesting facts on the background of the holiday, for those of you interested in learning more about the history of National Doctors' Day.

Dr. Leela B. Sud is the best doctor I have ever known. She helps others selflessly and tirelessly.
She did so much for me. Everyday of my life is a celebration of the gift
Dr. Leela B. Sud gave me.
Showing appreciation one day a year is not enough but I will honor her on Doctor’s Day.
