Southeast Georgia Health System Celebrates National Doctors Day with Charitable Donations

March 30, 2017 – Hospitals and medical offices around the nation celebrate National Doctors Day on March 30, a special day conceived by Eudora Brown Almond, wife of physician Charles B. Almond, M.D., to recognize physicians, their work and their contributions to society and the communities they serve. Southeast Georgia Health System marked the occasion by recognizing the more than 300 physicians who have privileges at its multiple facilities in Southeast Georgia with a luncheon on both the Brunswick and Camden campuses.

The first observance of Doctors Day was March 30, 1933, and in 1990, President George Bush officially designated March 30 as National Doctors Day.
