In 1933, Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, wanted to create a day to celebrate physicians like her husband. So, in Winder, Georgia on March 30, 1933, community members mailed greeting cards and placed flowers on graves of deceased doctors – marking the first observance of Doctor’s Day.
Years later, on February 21, 1991, President George H.W. Bush designated March 30 as National Doctor’s Day. This day is used to honor our nation’s physicians for their dedication and leadership.
We are beyond grateful for our team of doctors who have been providing care in some of healthcare’s hardest circumstances, while facing a pandemic, supply shortages and blood shortages. We encourage you to take a moment to thank your WRMC doctor today or the next time you see them. One small thank you can make a big difference.
