March 30th represents National Doctor’s Day, a holiday declared by President George H.W. Bush in 1991 as a day to recognize the hard work and dedication physicians provide us everyday. Proclamation 6253 by the 41st President was written in the spirit of recognition:
“All those Americans who serve as licensed physicians have engaged in years of study and training, often at great financial cost. Most endure long and unpredictable hours, and many must cope with the conflicting demands of work and family life.”
Ways to recognize your physician
Whether they are your co-worker, boss or primary care doctor, this is a great time to give a token of your appreciation. Here are some ideas:
- Send a thank you card
The art of a hand-written note will never get old. Write your doctor a special message and have family members sign as well if they also see this physician.
- Order custom balloons
There’s no better way to mark a celebration than with big, bright red balloons. The Southern Medical Association makes these balloons just for the occasion.
- Have red carnations delivered
The red carnation is the official flower for Doctor’s Day. Send those to your favorite physicians and be sure to include a special note.
- Gift them a special pen
Doctors write prescriptions everyday, so gifting them a custom pen would go to good use. Monogram it with their full name or initials to really make it personal.
National Doctor’s Day is a great day to not just recognize their hard work and long hours, but also the service they have provided to our personal health. A special Thank You from the Demandforce family to all of the doctors and physicians who have made an impact in our lives!
