This United States Public Health Service film details a variety of methods used to combat the spread of communicable disease; from inspecting ships and immigrants at Ellis Island, to combating mosquito and rat populations, to working with state and local authorities. The United States Public Health Service originated with an Act of Congress in 1798 for the “relief of sick and disabled seamen.” The role and responsibilities of what is now called the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service has changed and evolved over the years since then. This program includes graphic scenes of disease that may be disturbing to some viewers. close
