Liberia Asks Israel for Medical Experts to Establish Eye Clinics

Israel has accepted an invitation from President William V. S. Tubman, of Liberia, to send experts to that country to develop ophthalmic medicine, and help in the establishment of eye clinics.

A leading Israel eye specialist, Professor Isaac Michaelson, of the Hebrew University Medical School, will shortly leave for Liberia to make a study and advise on problems concerning the establishment of eye clinics there.

On returning to Israel, Professor Michaelson will be accompanied by several young Liberian doctors who will receive special training in ophthalmic medicine at Israel hospitals, while two Israel eye specialists will fly to Liberia to assist in the opening of the clinics.
