An exploratory study on the changing roles of health workers in modern medical practice will be launched by the Florence Heller Graduate School for Advance Studies in Social Welfare of Brandeis University, it was announced here today. The study, to be financed by a $50,000 grant by the National Foundation-March of Dimes, will seek to determine to what extent and how professional education for health personnel should be changed to meet modern conditions.

Theodore Shapiro, a prominent New York Jewish philanthropist, has underwritten the cost of building a $150, 000 lecture hall at Brandeis University, it was also announced here today. The hall, to be known as the Theodore Shapiro Forum, will be modeled on the United Nations General Assembly hall. Mr. Shapiro, a benefactor of numerous educational and medical institutions, is a founder of the Albert Einstein Medical School of Yeshiva University.
