March 30th is National Doctor’s Day! Since 1933, this day has been set aside to honor physicians, and in 1958, National Doctor’s Day was declared a national holiday by Congress. Historically, doctors were given a red carnation in thanks for their service and contributions to the community.
To celebrate National Doctor’s Day 2019, you can personally thank your doctor for everything he/she does throughout the year, send your doctor a card or flowers, or place carnations on the grave of a deceased doctor.
The American Medical Association encourages everyone to #HonorAPhysician. Share your favorite doctor’s name on your social media with the hashtag #HonorAPhysician. Here’s an image you can use for your social media posts:
