ABSTRACT
The article recalls the introduction of a bill proposing the establishment of a Department of Health by U.S. Senator Robert Owen, which was reported in the March 19, 1910 issue of the journal. It cites that although Owen recognizes the presence of the Bureau of Public Health, he still proposes the creation of a Department of Health. It reveals the issues and opposition surrounding such proposal. The author also urges readers to support the sentiment of Owen.
