NEW YORK, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether it was warning Americans about the perils of childhood obesity in the 1930s or the health consequences of smoking in the 1940s, or even leading the charge for preventive colonoscopies in the early 2000s, EHE International has remained ahead of its time throughout its history. Today, the company celebrates its centennial and honors the guiding vision of its founders and the dedication of its employees by releasing 100 Years of Preventative Health – the History of EHE International, a book chronicling the company's evolution and significant contributions to the field of preventive health.
Since EHE International's founding in 1913, the organization (the nation's largest provider of physical examinations) has remained true to its core mission: detecting life-threatening illnesses in an early, treatable stage and preventing disease by promoting good heath practices. Set against a backdrop of major milestones in American life, this 120-page book engagingly interweaves EHE International's rich history with the personal stories of those who were inspired to join the organization in support of its mission, including former U.S. president and first chairman of EHE International's board, William Howard Taft.
"This book is our tribute to the men and women of yesteryear who set forth the mission and led us here – and to those of today who help to ensure tomorrows for all of our patients," said EHE International President Deborah McKeever.
100 Years of Preventative Health – the History of EHE International is published by The Donning Company Publishers and is available at www.eheintl.com.
