Every year National Doctor's Day is held on March 30th, and although it's been observed in the United States since 1933, the celebration may be more relevant this year than ever before. Right now, doctors and other medical staff are working intense hours under significant threat of infection to cure an ever-increasing number of COVID-19 patients. National Doctor's Day is a time to show appreciation for the vitally important contributions doctors make to our society.
So how can you show your appreciation? We've got some tips:
Normally people send flowers or greeting cards to their doctors, but right now is a time when we should avoid sending physical items. But even a simple email of thanks can brighten someone's day. If you're particularly close to a doctor or have been seeing one for a long time, you may even want to send a gift card for a streaming service or online retailer! You can buy digital ones online and send them through email.
We spend years seeing a primary physical or even certain specialists, and in that time we share so much of our lives and our struggles with them. It's not uncommon for people to leave flowers at the grave of their longtime health care provider. (It's also not uncommon to send those flowers to the doctor's family in a more normal year.)
Health organizations around the world have given their recommendations on how to stop the spread of COVID-19, and it's important to listen to them right now. So stay indoors, don't gather, and only leave the house when absolutely necessary. Wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your face. The best way you can show your appreciation to doctors right now is by reducing their massive workload and threat of infection.
