Doctor's Day

"Non sibi, sed omnibus" (Not for one's self but for all)

Doctors' Day is a day celebrated to recognize the contributions of physicians to individual lives and communities. The date varies from nation to nation and in some nations is an official holiday.

For all the doctors, physicians, nurses, medical personnel, support staff and everyone else working to provide needed research, manufacturing, supplies and health support this past year ... and recognizing the incredible will, perseverance, and sacrifice during this past year, there are no words adequate enough to express appreciation. Still ... thank you. 👨‍⚕️ 💉 👩‍⚕️

Mar 30

National Doctors' Day is a day celebrated to recognize the contributions of physicians to individual lives and communities. The date may vary from nation to nation depending on the event of commemoration used to mark the day. In some nations the day is marked as a holiday. 


Historically, a card or red carnation may be sent to physicians, along with a flower being placed on the graves of deceased physicians.


The idea for this day, first observed in 1933, came from Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, and the date chosen was the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery. On March 30, 1842, in Jefferson, Georgia, Dr. Crawford Long used ether to anesthetize a patient, James Venable, and painlessly excised a tumor from his neck.


This tartan was worn at the First Aid Post at the Stone Mountain Games. Georgia, USA 1997.
