NHS Hosts Teddy Bear Clinic for WIC 1st Grade

In this picture, Kathy Sartorelli, NHS Med/Surg Manager, (right) stands by as the kids proudly show off their teddy bears as Bob the NHS Panda lays in the patient bed. Two room moms helped with the event as well.

NHS invited the 1st grade of WIC in for a Teddy Bear Clinic which included a tour of the hospital, a visit to the doctor for their teddy bear and a goody bag to take home. Our goal was to show young children that it's not scary to go the hospital or to the doctor's office. NHS plans on inviting the 1st grade classes of our other school systems in for the same event this fall. No teddy bears were harmed during the taking of this picture.
