In August 1935, following the passage of the Social Security Act, the President appointed the Interdepartmental Committee to Coordinate Health and Welfare Activities "in order that the full benefits of the varied federal program under the act's provisions might reach with minimum delay and maximum effectiveness the individual men, women and children for whose aid and service the program was brought into existence." Late in May of this year it was announced that a conference would be called in Washington by Miss Josephine Roche, chairman of the Interdepartmental Committee, to consider a national health program developed by the Technical Committee on Medical Care. With the approval of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Olin West, Secretary of the American Medical Association, invited Miss Roche to appear before the House of Delegates of the American Medical Association at the San Francisco session to present a statement regarding the proposed national health conference.
