Q.-Dr. Turner. How did National Negro Health Week begin? A.-National Negro Health Week was instituted thirty years ago by the late Dr. Booker T. Washington, whose philosophy of head, heart, hand and health brought into existence a movement that has extended into every section of the United States. In Philadelphia this year, we are most fortunate in that our Board of Public Health is sponsoring Health Week, with twenty-three cooperating agencies, among them Hospitals, Nursing Societies, Churches, Christian Associations, Parent-Teachers Associations, Medical Societies, Red Cross, Social Agencies and Educational As. sociations.
