UnityPoint Clinic Pediatrics to hold teddy bear clinic

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Hospitals and doctor's offices can be a scary place for kids. UnityPoint Clinics is holding an upcoming Teddy Bear Clinic to help reduce this fear. 

Staff from Unitypoint Clinic Pediatrics will be onsite during the BBQ Round-up Family Fun Day on Sunday, June 26 at the McGrath Amphitheatre in downtown Cedar Rapids. 

Children and families are invited to bring their favorite stuffed animal or "lovey" to the Medical Tent from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. to meet UnityPoint Clinic Pediatrics providers who will provide a check-up for their stuffed animal. 

Kids will get hands-on experience with common medical equipment in a fun, stress-free way to ease anxiety with children for when they got to the doctor.
