Lecture Vol. 19 # 10 March 29, 1989 cover
Address by C. Everett Koop, MD, ScD
Surgeon General of the U.S. Public Health Service
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Presented at the Annual Meeting of the U.S. Public Health Service Professional Association
New Orleans, Louisiana
March 28, 1989
Earlier on this day, I had conducted a Prayer breakfast and this was an address to the Plenary Session of the Commissioned Corps. In a sense it was the Commander-in-Chiefs farewell to the troops. I had spoken at the previous seven annual meetings of the United States Public Health Service Professional Association - which is larger than the Commissioned Corps - this was my last appearance before leaving my post.
I said nothing that I had not said before, but I said it in a nostalgic way, speaking as a partner with these folks I had come to love and respect, and I went through our accomplishments, our failures, our improvements, and the challenges for the days ahead.
The lecture is included in this archive because it closes out an era; it closes the loop, so to speak, on my association with the men and women of the United States Public Health Service.
