Almond, and all physicians by dedicating a special day specifically for doctors. Red Carnations are distributed to doctors as a symbol of National Doctors'Day. They are also placed on graves of deceased doctors to honor their lifelong service. The first ether anesthetic surgery was performed on March 30th, 1842, making March 30th a special day to honor Doctors.
