“This Is What Change Looks Like”: A New Appreciation for National Doctor’s Day

Posted by Kyle Design on March 24, 2010

For those of us who make an early retreat to bed on Sunday nights, we missed a pretty big deal last weekend when President Obama’s health care reform bill officially passed in Congress. Lucky for us, we can redeem our political savviness with the fact that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was just signed into law, marking a significant turning point in American history. In response to this, the President made a notable statement: “This is what change looks like.” Elsewhere, the controversial backlash has already reared its ugly head on the likes of Twitter and Facebook. As a fairly neutral party, I’ll share only one matter-of fact observation towards a positive outlook, and it’s that change is most certainly coming whether supported or not. In fact, it’s due to be celebrated next week!

Next Tuesday, March 30th is Doctor’s Day, and what better time to acknowledge this national holiday than literally a week after a historical healthcare transition for the country. More specifically, Doctor’s Day is observed as a yearly opportunity to thank and honor all of the medical professionals who have overseen our health and well-being from birth. Now, with the idea of a universal health policy on the brain, we can only imagine how drastically life will change for the physicians, nurses, surgeons, medical assistants, radiologists and anesthesiologists entrusted with our care.

Traditionally, patients demonstrate their thanks on this day with a red carnation or flower given as a token of appreciation for their physician’s help and aid. In light of the recent political climate, however, we might want to consider “upping the ante” by sharing more unique, lasting gifts as we enter a renewed appreciation for the holiday.
