Inaugural NYC COA Anchor & Caduceus
By The USPHS Greater NYC Commissioned Officers Association
Be A Part of History!
The origins of the Public Health Service can be traced back to 1798, but it was not until 1889 when legislation was introduced and signed by President Grover Cleveland that the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps was officially formed. This year marks the 126th anniversary of the Commissioned Corps, and in a year of firsts for 2015, history will be made again.
The Greater New York City Commissioned Officers Association invites you to a one of a kind event in a one of a kind city -- The First Inaugural NYC COA Anchor and Caduceus Dinner. We are kindly asking all COA members from across America to attend this special event as this will be a wonderful opportunity to connect in a fun and festive setting outside of the work environment. With the New York City skyline as the backdrop, the inaugural dinner is a special time for our Commissioned Corp Officers from all over to gather and to celebrate past and present achievements with an eye towards the future in our service to America as public health advocates.
