The Session of the League of German Medical Societies
About the middle of September, the forty-fourth session of the league of German medical societies (Der deutsche Aerztevereinsbund) was held in Leipzig. The total membership of the league comprises 39,000 physicians, by far the majority of the medical profession of Germany. As an economic auxiliary of the league, the Leipziger Verband was created in 1900, to oppose the growing domination of the Krankenkassen, or health insurance societies. In honor of its founder, Dr. Hartmann, the name Leipziger Verband was changed, two years ago, to the Hartmann Bund. For the reason that September 13 was the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Bund, this year's session had a commemorative aspect. Therefore, the meetings of the Deutscher Aerztevereinsbund and of the Hartmann Bund were exceptionally well attended. Several of the subjects discussed have interest beyond the borders of Germany.Dr. Vollmann, gynecologist and editor of
