Abstract

CALIFORNIA 

Personal.—  Dr. Alson R. Kilgore, San Francisco, secretary-treasurer of California Physicians' Service since its inception, has resigned as secretary but will continue as treasurer. Dr. Albert E. Larsen, San Francisco, medical director, will also serve as secretary.—Dr. Everett Morris, superintendent of Wish-i-ah Sanatorium, Auber y, resigned recently. He had been medical director since the opening of the sanatorium on May 16, 1929.

Cardiac Program in San Francisco Area.—  Three counties have been selected near the San Francisco area as a field for demonstration in a cardiac program which is part of the crippled children's services of the state department of public health. Funds have been supplied by the U. S. Children's Bureau. The program seeks to reduce the losses resulting from heart disease by providing:

  1. Diagnostic services for all children referred including home visits for diagnosis of patients acutely ill. Children already under medical care are cleared with their physicians before admittance to the clinic.

  2. Medical, hospital and convalescent care for patients whose parents are unable to pay. Children suffering from congenital and functional heart disease at present are not eligible for care.
