As a part of the program: "Free health check for primary school pupils in Hanoi" held by Thien Tam Fund, VINMEC and Hanoimoi newspaper, VINMEC carried out a general health check for pupils of Thanh Xuan Trung Primary School (Thanh Xuan Dist, Hanoi) on 16, 17, 18 of February, 2012.

Pupils at grades 2 and 3 of Thanh Xuan Trung Primary School were directly examined by high professinal qualified doctors to detect school dentistry diseases such as refractive erros, scoliosis disabilities and diseases related to ear-nose-throat.
