Abstract

The American Medical Association long ago in distinct terms, commended the establishment of State Boards of Health, and so far as the voice of the Association can be heard, it is thrown in advance to the support of our brethren in Georgia, who urge upon their Legislature the formation of a State Board of Health.

The welfare of the people; the relief of the weak; the prevention of epidemics; the limitation of disease; the increase of longevity, and the happiness of the public, are each to an appreciable extent affected by the establishment of a State Board of Health, with ample powers. Let Georgia fall into line with her sister States.
