The New York Heart Association has published several notable symposia and in other respects exerted a strong influence for the advance of cardiology not only in New York but throughout this country and the world. The papers reported at this one-day meeting stress particularly clinical aspects of diagnosis and treatment, with emphasis on current aspects of pathogenesis. The last half of the symposium deals with epidemiological aspects, rehabilitation, and cardiology as it related to the community and to public health. This excellent series of discussions will be useful to cardiologists, public health workers, and those doing general practice and internal medicine.
