Doctor's Day 2024: National Doctor’s Day is celebrated every year on 30 March in the United States. This year, we will observe the day on Saturday.

This day is dedicated to honouring the contributions of physicians to society, as well as to raising awareness about the importance of healthcare. Everyone should observe Doctor's Day to understand their importance and sacrifice.


Doctor’s Day 2024: History

The history of National Doctor’s Day dates back to 1933, when Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr Charles Almond, suggested that a day be set aside to honor physicians.

In her proposal, Almond said that flowers should be placed on the graves of doctors who had died. This tradition quickly gained popularity, and today, red carnations are widely seen as a symbol of gratitude for the medical community.

In addition to its symbolic value, National Doctor’s Day also offers an opportunity to reflect on the progress made in healthcare and the challenges that remain.

Doctors play a vital role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients, and they provide essential support and guidance. By celebrating National Doctor’s Day, we can express our gratitude for their contributions and reaffirm our commitment to healthcare as a essential aspect of a healthy society.
