Silver Caduceus Society hosts lecture on Cold War
The Fort Detrick Silver Caduceus Society hosted a lecture on the Cold War as part of their Professional Development Seminar Series on Oct. 27 at the National Cancer Institute.
Arthur T. Downey, an author, attorney and former diplomat, gave an informative and thought provoking presentation titled The Cold War: Law, Lawyers, Spies and Crises to a full room. The lecture provided a thorough look at the people and doctrines that helped avoid global catastrophe. According to Downey, the Cold War is a singular story of an uncommon time in world history.
The Fort Detrick Silver Caduceus Society is very active and often hosts lectures and activities for its members. Established in September 1967 as a forum for Medical Service Corps officers to conduct professional and personal development, the Silver Caduceus Society remains an important part of the evolving history of the MSC for providing education regarding advancements in technical, administrative and scientific arenas. Along with career development, a primary objective of the SCS is to encourage social interaction between MSC officers and to provide mentoring opportunities for junior officers.
