U.S. Group Visits Europe to Study Outbreak of Congenital Malformations

An American fact-finding team, composed of Dr. Charles H. Frantz, Chairman, Subcommittee on Children?s Prosthetics Problems; Dr. Arthur J. Lesser, Director, Division of Health Services, Children?s Bureau, U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare; and William A. Tosberg, CP & 0, Technical Director, Prosthetics Services, Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, New York City; departed for West Germany and England in late August to secure first-hand information on the recent upsurge of congenital abnormalities.

Following their return to the United States some time in September, the group will issue a report on their findings, which we hope to publish in the Inter-Clinic Information Bulletin.
