National Doctor’s Day : Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a doctor in Georgia, believed her husband and other physicians deserved more recognition for their hard work and set out to make this idea a reality. The first observed Doctor’s Day occurred on March 30, 1933, exactly 91 years after Dr. Long’s remarkable discovery.
Almond mailed greeting cards to all local physicians and their wives, and she put flowers on the graves of deceased doctors, including Dr. Long. The flowers were red carnations, which would later become the representative flower for the national holiday. A few other local doctors’ wives even assisted Almond in preparing a celebratory luncheon so their husbands’ work in healthcare could be publicly appreciated.
The tradition of delivering greeting cards to physicians, both alive and dead, has continued throughout the years and is still a common way of celebrating this holiday today. The red carnation is also still popularly used to say “thank you” to doctors for their work in medicine.
Spain, Cuba, and Argentina celebrate on December 3 to commemorate Dr. Carlos Juan Finlay’s birthday, who famously identified mosquitos as the cause of yellow fever.
In India, the National Doctor’s Day is celebrated on July 1 all across India to honor the legendary physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy (Dr. B C Roy). He was born on July 1 1882 and died on the same date in 1962. Dr. Roy was honored with the country’s highest civilian award, Bharat Ratna on February 4, 1961. The Government of India established the day in the year 1991 and it was marked on July 1, which was the birth and death anniversary of Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, who was not only a great physician but the second Chief minister of West Bengal.
The day is observed in India as a recognition and appreciation of the significant roles and responsibilities that doctors have. It also highlights and brings awareness to the public the important and precious work doctors do in saving lives. On this day campaigns are held all over the country with free medical check-up camps, consultation workshops, general screening test camps set up.
