Surgeon General Of the U.S. Public Health Service

Presented to the Industrial College of the Armed Forces
Washington, DC
February 18, 1989
This lecture is included in the archive largely to make the user aware of the fact that there is such a thing as the Industrial College of the Armed Forces formerly called the War College, and that an address given to that College will have repercussions throughout the all of the Armed Forces and especially at the interface of the Armed Forces with the civilian population in the jobs that the military does so well relying on both uniformed and non-uniformed personnel to get the job done.
Such a lecture is also an opportunity that in an archive like this, referring to something like the Public Health Service, has to be repeated at least every year so that the user has an update on the situation in reference to health promotion, disease prevention, the surveillance of disease, the statistics of infectious disease, and the predictions for what might be due in the coming several years.
A tremendous amount of material is covered in this lecture and I will not attempt to summarize it here. This lecture is directed to the concerns we all have about the health of young people in our society.
