The Washington Hospital Children’s Health and Safety Fair is features interactive games and activities that focus on health and safety information for children and families. The great event will feature free entertainment and giveaways, and fun for the whole family. Interactive booths will feature information about medication safety, healthy nutrition, health care resources and more.
The always-popular Teddy Bear Clinic is staffed with doctors and nurses from Washington Hospital offering check-ups to beloved teddy bears and stuffed animals. Children are encouraged to bring their teddy bears to visit the doctor. The animals will even get a bandage if they need it. The Teddy Bear Clinic provides a chance for children to interact with the medical staff to help ease fears about going to the doctor. To help celebrate Halloween, children and family members are encouraged to come in costume.
Information on several children’s health and safety issues are also available at the fair, including topics such as asthma and asthma checks, information on health insurance for children and healthy eating for children.
The American Academy of Pediatrics Web site, www.aap.org, contains information about the children's immunization schedule, breastfeeding guidelines, seasonal safety tips, including how to protect your children from accidental injuries, as well as simple solutions for safety around the home.
A Fun Event for the Whole Family!
