Produced by E. J. Barnes Associates, New York City for the School Health Bureau, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.
Quote from 1940's School Health Bureau: - "One of the latest devices for visualizing health is the film strip or film slide. This is a series of pictures printed together on a strip of film instead of on individual glass slides. There are several projectors on the market for showing film strips. They can also be used in an ordinary stereopticon machine with a special attachment." "as a means of helping students to understand, appreciate, and practice healthful living." It might also have value in recruiting student nurses.
