Kaweah Delta set to host November 15 teddy bear clinic in Visalia
VISALIA, CA – To help children understand the importance of visiting
a doctor and ease their fears of going to a hospital, Kaweah Delta Family
Medicine Center will host a teddy bear clinic and pediatric open house
on Wednesday, November 15, in Visalia.
The event will take place from 4-6 p.m. at Kaweah Delta Family Medicine
Center, 202 W. Willow Ave., 5th Floor, Visalia. The center is located
next the Kaweah Delta Medical Center. This event is appropriate for children ages 3-8.
Parents are encouraged to bring their children to this free event so that
their children will become more comfortable with the idea of seeing a
doctor and getting medical care. Children can bring any type of stuffed
animal to the event. Children will witness a typical medical appointment
through the eyes of their stuffed animal, from having their heart, lungs,
eyes and ears checked to minor bandages and repairs. They will also visit
a general safety station with health tips to stay healthy this flu season.
Stuffed animals will have their name and information on a patient file
and receive a health certificate following a physical examination. Additionally,
a drawing will be conducted for a large stuffed teddy bear.
To make a reservation for your child’s stuffed animal, you may complete
the registration form online at KaweahDelta.org/TeddyBear. Registration
is highly recommended, but not required.
