At Drug Mart Pharmacy, we recognize the critical role doctors play in our lives. This year, on National Doctor's Day, March 30th, 2023, we want to take a moment to express our gratitude and admiration for the tireless efforts of healthcare professionals in our community. In this blog post, we'll delve into the history of National Doctor's Day, highlight the importance of doctors in patient wellness, and share how Drug Mart Pharmacy supports and appreciates these dedicated individuals.

History of National Doctor's Day:

National Doctor's Day has its roots in the United States back in 1933 when Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to celebrate her husband's profession by setting aside a day to honor physicians. The first Doctor's Day was observed on March 30, which marked the anniversary of the first use of ether anesthesia by Dr. Crawford W. Long in 1842. In 1990, Congress designated March 30th as National Doctor's Day, and President George H.W. Bush officially signed it into law the following year.

The Role of Doctors in Patient Wellness:

Doctors dedicate their lives to the well-being of their patients. From primary care physicians to specialists like eye doctors, each healthcare professional brings unique expertise and skills to ensure patient wellness. They work tirelessly to diagnose, treat, and manage various health conditions, always putting their patients' needs first.
