Doctors Day 2015
On Doctors Day, we recognize physicians for their many contributions and the care they provide. We are grateful for their selflessness and the choice they make to dedicate their lives to caring for others.
Doctors Day was started on March 30, 1933, in Winder, Georgia, by Eudora Brown Almond. In observance of the first Doctors Day, greeting cards were mailed to physicians and their wives, and flowers were placed on the graves of deceased physicians. On October 30, 1991, President George Bush signed Senate Joint Resolution 366 (Public Law 101-473) making Doctors Day a national holiday. In the Doctors Day Proclamation (6253), President Bush quoted Dr. Elmer Hess, a former president of the American Medical Association, stating "There is no greater reward in our profession than the knowledge that God has entrusted us with the physical care of His people. The Almighty has reserved for Himself the power to create life, but He has assigned to a few of us the responsibility of keeping in good repair the bodies in which this life is sustained."
