Teddy Bear Clinic To Reduce Anxiety During Medical Visits (2)

February 20th, 2016


Kids ages 3-7 can have their teddy bears treated at the Teddy Bear Clinic on February 20, 2016.

The free event is Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Velocity Urgent Care, 396 Cromwell Ave, Rocky Hill, CT.

The Teddy Bear clinic provides a simulation of what it's like to go to an urgent care clinic. Kids will take their stuffed animal through an on-site ambulance, bandaging, mock X-Rays, mock flu shots, and more. The exercise assists in reducing anxiety that sometimes accompanies a child's visit to the doctor.

"The goal is to relieve your child's anxiety when it comes to medical visits, as well as important health information in a fun, relaxed setting," said Dr. John Yaylagul.
