Our relationship with you makes it possible for us to do a lot of good in the world – individually and together.

History of National Doctors' Day

The history of this special day goes back to March 30, 1933, when it was first observed in Winder, Georgia, just north and east of Atlanta. Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a Georgia physician, started the tradition by sending greeting cards and notes of gratitude to all the doctors she knew. She chose March 30 because it was the day in 1842 with Dr. Crawford Long first used an ether anesthetic for surgery. It finally became an official holiday by congressional proclamation in 1991.
