It is hard to comprehend that the roots of the Allegheny County Medical Society extend back to the Civil War. Physicians practiced against a backdrop of circumstances almost unimaginable today.
Minutes of Society meetings are replete with concerns for public health issues including clean water, air, milk and communicable diseases. Early Society members came to ACMS to hear the latest on smallpox and tuberculosis. The Society continues to be a leader in community efforts targeting today’s health threats — substance abuse, AIDS, infant mortality, obesity, and early childhood development.
