Greenwich Hospital to host 20th Annual Teddy Bear Clinic on Oct. 7
The Teddy Bear Clinic – Greenwich Hospital’s largest community event – will celebrate its 20th anniversary on Sunday, Oct. 7 from noon – 3 pm at 49 Lake Ave. in the Greenwich Medical Building parking lot behind the hospital.
Geared for children ages 3 through 12, this popular free event will take place rain or shine.
Children and their families are invited to experience the friendly face of medicine at this popular family event, staged as a mini-hospital under the tents. Visit with Greenwich Hospital doctors, nurses, technicians and other staff during this fun, interactive day of learning.
Peer through a microscope, climb aboard an ambulance, check out the X-ray machine and test your balance by negotiating an obstacle course. Families can learn about nutritious food, strong bodies, sun protection, sports safety and other healthy habits.
Children are encouraged to bring a favorite stuffed animal or doll for an exam. Depending on the diagnosis, dolls, bears and other fuzzy patients may receive splints, stitches, surgery or X-rays.
Free parking in the hospital’s staff lot on Lake Avenue. Walk-ins welcome! For information, call 203-863-3627.
