English term or phrase: FELS / United States National Child Health Examina
The FELS is an acronym about a longitudinal growth study. The latter is a survey published in 1976.
Erasmo Ramrez
English translation:FELS = Fels (not an acronym)
Explanation:
The Fels Study (not in all caps) is named for Samuel Fels, a Philadelphia philanthropist and businessman, who funded and helped found the Fels Research Institute and the Fels Fund of Philadelphia. According to the Fund's history, in 1929, Arthur Morgan, then President of Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, posed the question, "What makes people different?". He approached Fels regarding not only this question, but his idea that a longitudinal study from birth to adulthood would be required in order to attempt an answer to this question. Mr. Fels gave Arthur Morgan the backing needed to begin such a study.

I could find nothing that related specifically to the National Child Health Examina(tion); however, I did note that Fels was associated with the National Child Health Survey (NCHS); could this be the phrase you were looking for? Information on the Fels Institute and the NCHS can be found at the following URLs.

Hope this was of some assistance!
