Hospitals and doctor’s offices can be scary places for kids, so to help reduce that fear, UnityPoint Clinic and University of Dubuque Physician Assistant Program are teaming up to host Teddy Bear Clinics. The Teddy Bear Clinics will be in association with the Dubuque Farmer’s Market and Kids Expo – Dubuque County. Children and families are invited to bring their favorite teddy bear or stuffed animal to the event. Kids get hands-on experience with common medical equipment in a fun, stress-free way to ease anxiety with children for when they go to the doctor. Details about each event can be found below.
