During the next 90 days, physicians will be asked to examine the annual increment of kindergarten and first grade children as part of the Summer Round-Up of the Children sponsored by the National Congress of Parents and Teachers. The Summer Round-Up has had the endorsement of the American Medical Association since its inception in 1925. The Director of the American Medical Association's Bureau of Health Education has been a member of the Parent-Teachers Association Summer Round-Up Committee for this whole period and has been largely responsible for developing present policies and standards.
