Homenaje a los maestros Cora Mayers y Alfredo Demaría
Dr. Cora Mayers Glehy, was the director of the Nursing School, head of the Department of Health Education of the General Health Office, a founding member of the Pediatric Society and Dr. Alfredo Demaría Andreani, was a prominent student leader, first sanitarian graduated in the University of John Hopkins, director of Health, professor of the Chair of Hygiene and Preventive Medicine. Both were brilliant academics of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Chile in the early 1930's and great achievements were expected from them by the medical and university community. These hopes and longings were destroyed when they tragically ended their lives on the morning of a Monday, January 12, 1931.
