Important Health Check Information: January 2024

Local Vietnamese regulations require us to participate in periodic health checks. At the start of each academic year, students are to be seen by their own physician with that physical turned in. The second screening of the year is performed by our nurses on campus with the help of additional International SOS nursing staff. Screenings will include height and weight measurement, blood pressure screening, and vision screening. Screenings are not a substitute for examinations with your student’s own health care provider. You may be contacted with abnormal screenings, such as a possible need for eyeglasses, and advised to follow up with your own specialist physician for diagnosis.

Last year many of our students were identified to have impaired vision and referred for eye examinations.

ISHCMC Secondary campus will do health checks the week of January 22, 2024. 
ISHCMC Primary will have health checks the week of January 29, 2024.

Collective data on the community will be shared with local authorities as part of their public health process.
