Pan-American Medical Association to Meet in Mexico City in 1960.—The next Pan-American Medical Association Congress will meet in Mexico City, May 2 to 11, 1960. The meeting was announced by Joseph J. Eller, M.D., Director General of the Pan-American Medical Association, at the Association's Executive Offices at 745 Fifth Ave., New York.
Dr. Eller said that early indications point to the largest and most significant Congress in the 34-year-old organization's history.
He explained that the scientific program, through its 48 different medical sections, will include all branches of medicine and surgery, dentistry, hospital administration, and medical education.
New sections added since the last Pan-American Medical Association Congress include Space Medicine, Hematology, Cancer Cytology, and a large section on General Practice. There will be many special panels, including Pharmacology and New Drugs, Mental Diseases, Nutrition, Relationship of Dentistry to Medicine, Cancer Research, Sudden Deaths, Medical Press Relations, and others.
