An event of major importance will take place in Detroit on January 23-24, 1956, when the Council on Industrial Health of the American Medical Association holds its Annual Congress on Industrial Health. The significance of this conference is not that it will attract industrial physicians and general practitioners but that representatives of management, labor, and many community organizations will meet with doctors to discuss problems of current and common concern and interest. They are problems that face the employer, the employee, and the physician every day, year in and year out. They are problems that range from job absence due to nonoccupational illness and injury to those that are involved in top-level negotiations in the field of industrial relations. And they are problems that concern the health and well-being of every employee who is a breadwinner, whether he is an unskilled worker or a member of a topmanagement team.
