Immigrants Heal Us, Medical College Chancellor Says
A large proportion of American winners of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine were immigrants or the children of recent immigrants. We can thank these immigrants and their children for antibiotics, the polio vaccine, vascular surgery, and much of our progress in the war against disease and disability. Progress in medicine is fostered by the free movement of human ideas and the free movement of human talent — freedoms we deeply value.
