Doctors can sometimes be under-appreciated, but today seeks to combat that. March 30th marks National Doctors’ Day and it’s the perfect opportunity to thank your own doctor or physician for their service.
The annual event was first celebrated March 30, 1933, when Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, set a day aside to honor physicians. From those beginnings in Winder, Georgia, the celebration spread, and the House and Senate officially declared March 30 “National Doctors’ Day” in 1990.
This Year Front Range Hospice and Palliative Care would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our community physician partners. Your dedication to quality medical end of life care is appreciated. We would also like to take a moment to say a special thank you to Dr. Gregory Maeder the Front Range Hospice Medical Director.
