Health Screenings

Yesterday the students went through their annual health screening. This is a general physical exam, height and weight to check for malnutrition, vision and hearing tests, blood test to screen for common problems and so on. Over decades of research Dr. Heck has arrived at a short list of essential screening tests for children in developing economies. When we shared that list with Wema at the Compassion center, she showed us the chart of one of the children, demonstrating that they routinely administer all of these tests. Just one more way Compassion is an amazing organization.
