Download PDF for this date

Dr. Abraham J. Levy will sail for Palestine, July 23, on the S. S. Sinaia, to assume his duties as assistant director of the Nathan and Lina Straus Health Center of Hadassah in Jerusalem. Dr. Levy, who is a Palestinian and a graduate physician, was enabled to pursue his studies in public health at Yale University by virtue of a scholarship granted to him by Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America.

Dr. Levy distinguished himself while at Yale, by completing the two year course in public health in a period of one year, during which time he not only wrote several valuable articles which have appeared in leading publications in this country, but also wrote a monograph on the “Songs of Moses,” which has just been published by the Oriental Review Series. His article on the “Effects of Quinine on the Tubercle Bacillus” appeared in the June issue of the American Review of Tuberculosis, and his thesis on “The Health Center as a Community Service Unit” will be published by Yale University. In recognition of the high quality of his work at the University, he was elected to the Delta Omega, the Public Health Honor Society.
