2015 National Doctors' Day is a great time to say thank you to you physicians.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 23, 2015
The National Doctors' Day Organization today announced the release of their 2015 greeting card. Each year the organization creates a new greeting card designed specifically for honoring physicians on National Doctors' Day. This year’s card cover reads, "For making every day count…" and the inside reads "Thank You, Happy Doctors’ Day." Each year they provide many free resources for hospitals and physician's offices to plan and celebrate this national holiday.
The organization was started back in 2006 when the company launched a website dedicated to providing event support for National Doctors Day which is held on March 30th every year. The organization has since branched out to include many specialty specific products that serve to help hospital administrators and office managers with gift ideas for their doctors. In addition to their greeting cards, they also provide new products to the industry, such as their new Otoscope Lapel Pin.
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."
