Description
  • A manuscript written by Dr. Eugene A. Stead, Jr. in 1969 and submitted to Dr. Thomas Kinney, Director of Medical Education at Duke University, outlining a plan to combine private and public sector funds to provide upper career mobility for socio-economically disadvantaged citizens. The plan addresses the following problems: "How to give public assistance with dignity; how to create useful jobs for that portion of society who can work but who, if paid the minimum wage, cannot return a profit for their employer; how to give home services to rich and poor of all races in times of need so they can live in security outside of nursing homes; how to create for the unskilled - career ladders which have sufficiently small steps to be realistic; and so on. This plan provides insight into Dr. Stead's creative mind and innovative thinking that also contributed to the establishment of the PA profession.
