Speech [presented to the] American Red Cross, Rochester-Monroe County Chapter, Rochester, New York (November 29, 1989)

This is another lecture, which is typical of transitional lectures. It stakes my history out in very certain terms, but also
takes a look, prophetically, at the future based upon what I learned in 40 years as a surgeon and 8 years as Surgeon General.
If the user wishes to understand the hundreds of lectures, which follow, this is a good place to assess where I think I had
been, what I thought I had accomplished, and what prophetic glance I could give to the future based up past experience.
