French Medical Mission.
—Drs. Paul Harvier, clinical internist; Joseph Logre, psychiatrist; Marc Richard Klein, neurosurgeon; Antoine Remond, electroencephalographist, and Guillaume Valetta, pharmacologist, were recently invited by the members of the National University of Colombia for a scientific "good will" trip to Colombia. The aforementioned invited members of the French medical mission arrived in Bogotá on March 27, 1951. They conducted an interesting scientific and social program for two weeks in Bogotá and one week each in Medellin and Cartagena. The program included lectures in the faculties of medicine of the aforementioned cities and clinical lessons on experimental and surgical demonstrations in hospitals. Many social festivities were organized to honor the French physicians. The main purpose of the mission was to strengthen the cultural and scientific relations between members of the French and Colombian medical profession.
