UMMC HOSTS ANNUAL TEDDY BEAR & DOLL CLINIC
Written by WBTA STAFF on May 21, 2018
For over 20 years the Teddy Bear & Doll Clinic has provided an innovative, hands-on opportunity to educate young children about what it’s like to visit a heath care professional when they’re sick or hurt—and to serve as a healthy reminder that there is nothing to fear.
Over 200 children will transform their favorite doll or stuffed animal into a “patient”, and take them through various hospital stations, resembling areas such as: registration, stitching, x-ray, respiratory therapy, emergency, laboratory services, and nutrition. Children will also get the opportunity to meet a life-sized Doc McStuffins, and explore an ambulance.
