March 30 is National Doctor’s Day, a time to appreciate our providers for devoting their lives to caring for others. Today we say “thank you” for keeping us well, and, for helping us feel better in our hours of need.
The first Doctors’ Day observance was March 30, 1933 in Winder, Georgia. On March 30, 1958, a Resolution Commemorating Doctors’ Day was adopted by the United States House of Representatives. In 1990, legislation was introduced in the House and Senate to establish a national Doctor’s Day. Following overwhelming approval by the United States Senate and the House of Representatives, on October 30, 1990, President George Bush signed S.J. RES. #366 (which became Public Law 101-473) designating March 30th as “National Doctor’s Day.”
