Item Description

  • Project MED-AID volunteers answering phone calls. Project MED-AID was the medical center's radio consultative program for isolated doctors in other countries. The radio program met critical needs of physicians in developing countries, and for doctors in remote areas (like jungle hospitals, mobile units, and village clinics), having a ready means of contacting fellow physicians for advice and resources was invaluable. Consultant doctors at the Duke University Medical Center answered inquiries via telephone, which was connected to a radio transmitter and receiver so that they could easily communicate with the calling party. Project MED-AID began in 1966 and was discontinued in 1970.
