U.S. Pharmacists Decide to Establish Laboratory at Hebrew University Medical School

The establishment of a Pharmacology Research Laboratory at the new Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical School on Mt. Scopus was undertaken by Rho Pi Phi Pharmaceutical Fraternity at its convention held here.

After adopting a resolution praising the $4,000,000 fund-raising effort of the new Palestine Medical School now being conducted in the United States by the American Friends of the Hebrew University and Hadassah, the 300 delegates under the leadership of Supreme Councillor Maurice Haberman of Toronto, Canada, pledged themselves to provide a fund for a Pharmacology laboratory that will bear the name of the oldest and largest Jewish pharmacological fraternity in the United States.

The fraternity also adopted a code of ethics for the pharmaceutical profession called “Ten Commandments for My Profession,” introduced by Maurice Goldsmith of Boston, former supreme councillor. This code, prepared in cooperation with the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, marks the first time that a nation-wide professional group has specifically stated its social duties to the community.
