The Fort Bend Children's Discovery Center and MedExpress Urgent Care, a neighborhood medical center, would like to invite Fort Bend families to bring stuffed furry friends for a "check-up" and learn more about what to expect when visiting a doctor's office or urgent care.
The Discovery Center will host a "MedExpress Teddy Bear Clinic" to teach basic health care concepts to children in pre-school and kindergarten.
Friday, April 19, at 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM.
Children are invited to bring their own stuffed friends with them and participate in hands-on activities to learn about splinters, germs, sprains and scrapes.
MedExpress employees teach children what doctors, nurses and radiologists do, including mock X-rays and applying bandages to a teddy bear named Sniffle.
The MedExpress Teddy Bear Clinic is recommended for children ages 3 to 8.
