In 1798, President John Adams signed into law the Act for the Relief of Sick and Disabled Seamen. It was the seed which grew into today’s Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service.
Members of the John Adams Society decided to plant their own seeds and support the PHS Commissioned Officers Foundation for the Advancement of Public Health. They chose to bequeath funds to the Foundation in their wills and trusts. You can join the John Adams Society.
