Statement on War and Aggressions

As a worldwide Society with international reach, MDS strongly condemns acts of war, terrorism, violence and aggression as part of our commitment to creating and nurturing a diverse community of professionals dedicated to promoting excellence and leadership in medicine and science through education, research, clinical care, and service. 

War inevitably results in denial of the right to live in a safe and healthy environment. We trust in the greater power of science and medicine which can transcend borders and unite people of every culture. 

MDS sends our support to our colleagues and all who are experiencing pain and suffering from these types of deeply troubling events, including those directly exposed to armed conflict, those displaced from their homes and countries, and those providing care and protection to civilians, friends, and family around the globe.
