Why do Ontario docs rock on a different day?

Share this

I'm always happy to receive wishes to have a good day.

Today, I was surprised by a designated doctor's day on May 1 in Ontario. Complete with kids coloring page, "My doc rocks because ..."

This is new to me. I've never celebrated doctor's day or known anyone who has.

On looking a little further I found that March 30 is touted as a national doctors day,

"The first National Doctors' Day was observed in the United States on March 30, 1933, when Ms. Eudora Brown Almond of Winder, Georgia conceived the idea to honour the first administration of anesthesia in Jefferson, Georgia almost 100 years earlier.

In Canada, many communities recognize the day on March 30. ... A number of communities around Alberta organize physician appreciation activities to say thank you to their healthcare heores."
