National Negro Health Week observance March 29-April 5, 1936, inaugurated by the late Booker T. Washington many years ago has become a permanent institution. This movement has done more to arouse interest in health matters, and has made the Negro more health coniscious than any other agency for the promlotion of the general welfare of the Negro race in America. This year's observance, from early reports, indicates that the people everywlhere, especially among our group showed keener and greater interest in these health meetings than ever before; this is most encourag ing to the various civic organizations cooperating with the medical and dental professions in spreading the doctrine of preventive medicine.
