Description

Excerpt from Transactions of the Section on Preventive Medicine and Public Health of the American Medical Association at the Sixtieth Annual Session: Held at Atlantic City, N. J., June 8 to 11, 1909 There is - there can be - no higher specialty in med icine than that for which this Section stands, and we must present this to the public in such unmistakable terms that full recognition shall be accorded both to the sanitarian and to the profession as a Whole, for neither can stand alone, as I hope presently to Show. It is Sheer waste of ability and time for the members of this Section to tell each other What they already know, and even the general distribution of new matter by the pioneers of the Section can not, in the nature of things, be so broadly useful as the same character of work would be, and is, in our truly great medical Sec tion. Our greatest function, it seems to me, lies in the fact that we are the connecting link between that great medical body which handles the vast majority of the diseases we would prevent and the general public, the victim of those diseases. This being an undisputed fact, we Should have in mind constantly the two duties which follow this fact as naturally as the day follows the night. We must im press ou the public the vast import to them of prevent ive medicine; we must Show them that health means wealth and happiness, to the first very frequently and to the last always a necessary adjuvant.
