National Doctor's Day..March 30th

These are the 2 wonderful doctors I work for at the office and the hospital.
We are having a breakfast to honor them on our "Wall of Fame" at the hospital tomorrow morning. They are both very passionate in caring for and educating our patients with diabetes. They make coming to work enjoyable.
Happy Doctor's Day Miguel and Heidi!!!

History of National Doctors' Day
The first Doctor's Day observance was March 30, 1933 in Winder, Georgia. Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to set aside a day to honor physicians. This first observance included the mailing greeting cards and placing flowers on graves of deceased doctors. The red carnation is commonly used as the symbolic flower for National Doctor's Day.

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."
