 Self-Care: Teaching Medicine to Kids 

We should have included some way to evaluate the effects of the class, maybe a ''draw-the-inside-of your-body" test and a "feelings-about-doctors" questionnaire.

According to the kids' regular teachers, most of them continued their projects begun in our group after the official class was over. It would have been helpful to work out some kind of continuing health focus in their regular class.

The most striking effect of the class was reported by the mother of one of the girls a few weeks after the class had finished. She called up on her own initiative to let us know that her daughter had always had a terrible time with doctor's visits—staying awake the night before, crying, etc. But this time—her first doctor's visit since the beginning of the class—she seemingly had none of her previous fears. The doctor came in with his stethoscope and her daughter said, "Oh, I have one of those, too!" And they went on to talk about their respective stethoscopes.
