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. The contemporary relevance and historic lessons learned from this medical mission at war will be discussed.
For suggestions regarding future lectures, please contact the Office of Global Health.
