"….membership in the Society of Delta Omega should not be regarded solely as an honor in recognition of past achievements in the field of Public Health. It should mean life-long obligations and devotion to the interests of public health in accordance with the ideals of Delta Omega. It should imply zest for erudition, as measured in terms of scholarship and research and constant effort to be in the vanguard of the modern public health movement as manifested by intelligent, considered, constructive action and effective leadership. Election to Delta Omega should be regarded as a consecration to quality work and to high standards in all those interests and activities making up modern public health."
--John Sundwall's 1939 Presidential Report to the Society
