North, A. Frederick, Jr.; And Others
One of a series of four symposium papers, this document deals with research issues in early childhood health and nutrition. Dr. A. Frederick North, Jr., presents an overview of research and emphasizes the importance of identifying children's health problems, using the most effective treatment and intervention techniques, and utilizing resources to identify and remedy problems. The medical and economic issues of providing basic medical care to children are discussed by Dr. Robert J. Haggerty, and a model for a health care system within the context of Head Start is proposed. Dr. Marsden G. Wagner stresses the cultural and subcultural factors and organizational considerations of providing health services to Head Start children. The underlying philosophy of establishing health care and other services for the disadvantaged is given consideration by Dr. Herbert Birch. (Document ED 034 088 has the full text of the proceedings of all six Head Start seminars in this series.) (DR)
