National Doctors' Day is held every year on March 30 in the United States. It is a day to celebrate the contribution of physicians who serve the nation's citizens. The first Doctor's Day observance was March 30, 1933 in Winder, Ga. Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Charles B. Almond, M.D., decided to set aside a day to honor physicians. This first observance involved mailing greeting cards and placing flowers on graves of deceased doctors.
