A group of physicians will leave the United States about March 8 to visit Cuba, Panama, Venezuela, and the Dominican Republic, where they will present a symposium on pulmonary and cardiac diseases to the physicians of those countries. The program will consist of lectures, ward rounds, demonstrations, and operative chest surgery. The trip is sponsored by the World Medical Association in order to provide for the exchange of ideas and techniques on an international level. The World Medical Association hopes that funds will become available so that more trips of this kind can be made to other parts of the world and thus further international medical relations. Details concerning this trip will be found on page 850 in this issue of The Journal.
