AMERICA'S HEALTH by The National Health Assembly


Email this review


Sub-titled ""A Report to the Nation"", this is that of the National Health Assembly which convened for four days in May, 1948, and which summarized the findings of hundreds engaged in medicine and public health on our national needs, and deficiencies, in fourteen allied areas. This is a statistical survey of what we have, and what we should have, and in each case proposes a positive program of recommendations; the nation's need for health and medical personnel; for hospitals, clinics and health centers; for local health units; for research and medical care; for state and community planning for health; and the specifics of chronic disease and old age; maternal and child health; rehabilitation; dental and mental health; nutrition and sanitation. A large body of facts and figures- this is for professional use- and it can be hoped-progress.
