Abstract

INTRODUCTION The health careers of three hundred normal children are being studied along lines suggested by Dr. Kenneth Blackfan and Dr. Haven Emerson. The episodes of sickness have been observed, their incidence has been noted and an attempt is being made to study their influence on the trend of health, growth and development of the children. Hereditary and environmental characteristics, which appear to be important factors, have been observed, and, so far as possible, their influence on the incidence and the effects of sickness in these children is being studied. Preventive measures, as applied by the individual physician and family, have been employed, their influence has been noted and an attempt is being made to ascertain what has worked and what has not. In considering the results of pediatric supervision as observed in such a group, it is of value to recognize the possibilities and limitations encountered. Among the most
