National Doctor's Day in the United States is celebrated annually on March 30, starting in 1991. The resolution on its establishment was signed on October 30, 1990, by US President George W. Bush, and was officially approved by Congress and the Senate.
But, in fact, Doctor's Day began to be celebrated long before official America recognized this day as national. History takes us to March 30, 1933, in the city of Winder, Georgia.
The idea of celebrating Doctor’s Day belongs to Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, who decided to respect her husband and all doctors in maintaining the health of citizens. The first celebration of Doctor's Day was marked by sending greeting cards to practicing doctors and laying flowers on the graves of departed doctors. The symbol of Doctor's Day in America is a red carnation.
Celebrating the holiday on this day was proposed in commemoration of the anniversary of the first application of general anesthesia by the American doctor and pharmacist Crawford Williamson Long (1815-1878) in 1842.
Today this holiday is very popular in the medical and medical community of America because the national day of the doctor glorifies one of the oldest and most sought-after professions in the world - the profession of a doctor.
