Health
Holidays

Health holidays don’t only exist to raise awareness about the hundreds of illnesses and heath issues people live with every day, but also to celebrate the doctors and nurses working tirelessly to find a cure and improve our health. That’s why we celebrate over 137 health based holidays every year, from National Gluten-Free Day on January 13 to National Handwashing Awareness Week during the first week of December.
