The third day of the Sanitary Camp was devoted to conduct clinical assessments of children at the primary schools of Villa Ana. In the video, a group of Medical Students are working on this in a big classroom that was set as “consulting room”. They are evaluating the children physically, and asking them questions about their health habits and conditions. They follow a paper-based questionnaire, and record the information by hand in the form. Later that night they transcribed all the information in a digital “excel” data-base in order to process the data. The last day of the Sanitary Camp they presented the main results orally (with a Power Point) to the community. Some weeks after, they send a written general report with the results to the municipal and health authorities; as well as a personal confidential report about each children’s assessment to their parents.
The fifth day of the Sanitary Camp the results of the epidemiological survey and clinical assessment of children were presented to the community and health authorities on a stage in the park. Before the presentation of the results the municipal authorities wanted to organize a celebration for the Children’s Day, as a way of promoting the interaction between the community and the group of students and professors from the National University of Rosario. The Medicine students then organized different playful activities and also served food to the neighbors. In the video a group of students are playing with some of the children.
