The American Medical Association will co-sponsor with the three principal medical institutions in Israel a 1973 medical conference in Tel Aviv. The undertaking is a part of AMA’s continued interest in the area of international health and marks the first attempt at co-sponsoring a formal meeting abroad. The 14-day trip will include scientific presentations by leading Israeli authorities as well as visits to medical schools and other medical and research facilities. Dr. Albert B. Sabin, president of the Weizmann Institute of Science, is the guest host. Also participating in the scientific portion of the program are the Hebrew University – Hadassah Medical School of Jerusalem and the Tel Aviv University Medical School.
