Health Holidays

We have over 137 Health related holidays we have listed throughout the year. Sounds like a lot right? That’s because our health is important and each holiday helps to either highlight a disease worth knowing about, give us a reminder to prioritize our own health, or celebrates the men and women who’s choose to dedicated themselves to making sure we remain as healthy as possible.
