The information center, one of the projects of the American Jewish Congress Physicians’ division, headed by Dr. Benjamin Jablons, will secure and disseminate information regarding licenses here for Jewish physicians from Germany.

The Congress will, in addition, attempt to place physicians in hospitals and private practice throughout the country and in Central and South America. Funds for the work will be raised by medical circuit lectures.
