The National Congress of Parents and Teachers recently asked the House of Delegates of the American Medical Association to request the state medical societies to appoint committees or arrange for representation in conferences in the several states between medical societies, dental societies, health departments, educational agencies and the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, looking toward the improvement of health services and health education for school children.
The communication1 was received just prior to the Annual Session of the American Medical Association, considered by the Board of Trustees, and introduced into the House of Delegates too late for committee action. A resolution2 was also introduced into the House of Delegates at one of its later meetings and will be acted on at the Interim Session of the American Medical Association in St. Louis in December 1948.
