Dr Yank Coble, a Florida-based endocrinologist, has been named president of the World Medical Association (Ferney-Voltaire, France). During his inaugural speech at the association's annual general assembly in Tokyo, on October 9, he called on governments to "think of medical care and research as an investment, a value - one with a tremendous return", and not merely as a cost. Dr Otmar Kloiber, deputy secretary general of the German Medical Association, was appointed as the WMA's new secretary general.
