Did You Know? 
Doctor's Day was  first instated in Georgia on March 30, 1933 , after Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a physician, decided there should be a day to appreciate physicians. March 30 was a meaningful date because it was the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery, which occurred in 1842. The first Doctor's Day consisted of  sending cards to physicians and their wives,  placing flowers on the graves of deceased doctors, and  having a dinner in their honor. In 1990, President Bush signed the day as a national holiday. Today, the nationwide day of appreciation can involve tokens of appreciation of any sort toward physicians, typically practiced by health care organizations.
