Health Observances & Healthcare Recognition Dates
This is a calendar of all 12 months of health observation and recognition dates for the health, medical and hospital industry. Health observances are days, weeks, or months devoted to promoting particular health concerns. Recognition dates are those weeks or days set aside to honor specific healthcare professionals. This calendar will come in handy for community relations programs as well as employee appreciation events. Health professionals, teachers, and community groups can all use these special times to sponsor health promotion events, stimulate awareness of health risks, or focus on disease prevention.
