Honoring Those Who Help Save Lives
March 28, 2012
Augusta, GA – There are nearly one million physicians in America who help heal the sick every day, many saving their patients lives. National Doctors’ Day was created to make sure their work and contributions never go unnoticed.
Doctors Hospital will be celebrating the work of its physicians on National Doctors Day.
When: Friday, March 30th
Time: 6:30am – 1:30pm
Theme: Hawaiian Luau
Free lab work for all physicians. Luau themed lunch to include a Tiki ice sculpture and whole roasted suckling pigs. The menu also includes Tuna Poke, Fresh Sushi, Hawaiian Spiced Chicken Wings, and Sous Vide Eggs Benedict for Breakfast.
“We really enjoy doing this for our doctors. This is our opportunity to create something that they will remember until next year,” says Robbie Bradford, Director of Food & Nutrition Services at Doctors Hospital. “Their jobs are stressful enough so if we can give them a day to relax and enjoy the atmosphere then that’s what we want to do.”
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. It was not until October 30, 1990 that President George Bush signed into law making March 30th National Doctor’s Day.
