Introduction to Health

‘I would like to make a pledge to the whole medical fraternity that A.A. will always stand ready to cooperate, that A.A. will never trespass upon medicine, that our members who feel the call will increasingly help in those great enterprises of education, rehabilitation and research which are now going forward with such promise.’ – Bill W. Presentation to the New York City Medical Society on Alcoholism
