Pan-American Medical Association.—A congress of the Pan-American Medical Association was held in Havana, Cuba, from Dec. 29, 1928, to Jan. 3, 1929. The program, arranged by the president, Dr. Fred H. Albee of New York, included four orations on the subjects of surgery, medicine, pediatrics and tropical medicine.
Dr. William J. Mayo gave the oration on surgery and Dr. Lewellys Barker of Johns Hopkins University, the oration on medicine. Papers were read in both Spanish and English.
The congress was representative of the medical profession of the entire western hemisphere. Chapters of the association from the various centers of North America and Central America, as well as from the Antilles, were represented.
One of the recent accomplishments of the association is the establishment of the Pan-American Hospital in New York for the benefit of people speaking the Latin languages.
