Mothers and babies were lined up in front of the Ix-canaan Clinic well before the 9 a.m. starting time for the Well-Baby Clinic, another of the projects of the students of North Carolina State.
The student volunteers split up into groups to handle various parts of the examinations. One of the volunteers filled out the child’s name, age and other pertinent information on growth charts like this one below.
(There were separate charts for boys and for girls.)
And other volunteers checked each childs height, weight and head circumference, and that information was entered on their personal chart to determine if they were within normal limits for growth.
