Roosevelt Medical Center To Host Teddy Bear Clinic

Roosevelt Medical Center will host its’ first annual Teddy Bear Clinic on Wednesday, Aug. 11, from 1-4 p.m. during the Roosevelt County Fair. The “clinic” will be set up on the lawn under a brown canopy. The event is free to the public and recommended for youth between the ages of three and nine.

During the three-hour event, youth can bring their favorite stuffed animal and it will receive a free health check and annual vaccinations by a medical provider. No appointments are necessary, and each plush animal will receive a certificate of good health.

“This activity is a fun way to address the fears and concerns many young patients have when they go to the clinic or when they have routine medical procedures,” said Jaimee Green, RMC marketing and foundation director.

All youth who participate will be entered to win a large teddy bear and will receive a coloring book, courtesy of RMC.

Small teddy bears will be available to youth who want to participate in the event but do not bring a plush animal.
