March 30 is Doctors' Day at Christie Clinic


Help us thank our physicians and raise money for Francis Nelson

Doctors' Day is a way of saying thanks to the physicians who work tirelessly every day to keep their patients and our community healthy.

The first Doctors' Day observance was March 30, 1933 in Winder, Georgia. Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to set aside a day to honor physicians. This first observance included the mailing of greeting cards and placing flowers on graves of decreased doctors. The red carnation is commonly used as a symbolic flower for National Doctors' Day. On March 30, 1958, a resolution commemorating Doctors' Day was adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives. On October 30, 1990, President George Bush signed a resolution designating March 30 as National Doctors' Day.

Help us thank Christie Clinic physicians on Doctors' Day, March 30, and you will help the Frances Nelson Health Center. Post a “Thank you note” to your physician on the Christie Clinic Facebook Wall on March 30 and we will donate $1 to the Frances Nelson Health Center ($1 for each individual and a maximum $500 donation total for Doctors' Day). We will make sure your physician gets your note!
