    Tarascon Celebrates Physicians on National Doctor's Day

    Posted by Lindsay White on Mar 30, 2018 5:35:00 AM


    Today is National Doctor's Day! A day that reminds us to recognize the dedication and contributions of physicians to their patients and communities. Many nations around the globe celebrate their doctors, though the date varies. Brazil celebrates on October 18th in honor of the birth of Saint Luke. Iran, Cuba, India, Vietnam, and Nepal also established their own holiday to show appreciation for the unwavering care of their physicians.

    "The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease."
    -William Osler

    In the United States, we have Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, to thank for National Doctor's Day. Mrs. Almond chose March 30th to commemorate the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery. On this day in 1842, Dr. Crawford Long used ether to anesthetize a patient and remove a tumor from his neck. On October 30, 1990, President George H. W. Bush declared March 30th an official national holiday.
