About 11 MNDF staff from their Health Department carried out the screening programme which was also aimed at identifying various health issues and educating the parents on ways to deal with such issues. Stations was set up to screen for different areas which included growth monitoring, vision screening, hearing screening and physical examination. Apart from this, a kiosk was also set up to collect the students' personal and medical information along with any medical history, vaccination and information relevant to different allergies.
