Teddy Bear Clinic
Saturday, September 21st. 10am-12pm
Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, Inc.
550 S. Peoria Ave., Tulsa
Children are encouraged to bring their favorite teddy bear, stuffed animal or doll to the health fair. During the event, the child will serve as the “parent” of the teddy bear or other stuffed animal while accompanying them through the different service areas of the clinic which will include reception, waiting room, doctor’s exam, and radiology. The goal of the teddy bear clinic is to provide a fun environment that will alleviate a child’s fears of the medical setting and allow doctors, nurses, and technicians to perform various procedures on the toys, including X-rays, lab tests and checkups. At the same time, children get a better understanding of how a doctor’s office work and learn about wellness and injury prevention. (http://www.ihcrc.org/)
