Fleas, Flies, and Fascists: Lessons from the International Medical Relief Corps

  • Speaker: Robert Mamlok, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatrics, TTUHSC
  • Date: Wednesday, April 16, 2014
  • Time: 12:00 noon CT
  • Location: ACB 120

The International Medical Relief Corps was a medical mission to the Chinese Red Cross from 1938 – 1945. The efforts of these European and North American physicians constitute one of the great stories of the great generation. Their humanism and internationalism is well known in China but relatively unknown in the West. During this presentation, the contemporary relevance and historic lessons learned from this war-time medical mission will be discussed.

Free lunch will be provided to the first 40 attendees!

This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is necessary. Meals will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.

This presentation will not be linked to the additional TTUHSC campuses; however, it will be recorded for future viewing on the OGH website.
