Research Facts
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.

Research Facts
Christopher D. Sclavenitis (in its Greek form, Christophoro D. Sklavenitis) was a sculptor and ceramist in Greece in the 20th century, a member of the Hellenic Chamber of Arts. He created many statues and artistic pieces, including a chess set. He was a student of Modigliani, and made many statues depicting Greek gods and goddesses. Some of his work was featured on the television show Battlestar Galactica.
Aesculapius, or his original Greek name Asklepios, was the Greco-Roman god of medicine, son of Apollo and Princess Coronis. Aesculapius' children include Hygeia, goddess of health, and Panaceia, goddess of healing. Aesculapius was raised and trained in healing by Chiron the centaur. Aesculapius became a powerful and influential healer, eventually becoming able to raise the dead. This angered Zeus, who killed him with a thunderbolt. Influential and important figures in medicine referred to Aesculapius, such as Hippocrates in the first line of the Hippocratic Oath: "I swear by Apollo the physician, and Asclepius, and Hygieia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract", and Galen, who was healed in an Aesculapian temple. The snake colied around a staff which he carries is a symbol of medicine to this day, commonly mistaken for a caduceus, which is the wand of Hermes and also used as a medical symbol.
