Download PDF for this date

The United States Vocational Rehabilitation Administration has awarded a research grant of nearly 250,000 pounds ($80,000) to the Israel Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School and the National Insurance Institute, for a number of projects.

Subjects of the research vary from the rehabilitation potentialities of post-polio children of school age, to a two-year study of dermatitis in cement workers and their rehabilitation.
