Kids Dress up as Doctors at Children's Healthcare Fair

The goal was to help children not fear hospitals.

More than 1,000 elementary students visited Presbyterian Hospital to learn what it’s like to stay or visit someone in the hospital as part of Presbyterian’s annual Children’s Healthcare Fair.

During the event kid’s had the opportunity to dress-up as doctors and nurses and stitch up their teddy bear patients. After, they examined x-rays of broken bones, had a real cast place on their finger and saw what it was like to be in a wheelchair and use crutches. They also learned about medical equipment and how health living affects your heart and lungs.

The aim of the Children’s Fair was to teach kids what to expect if they or a family member is ever hospitalized and learn why the hospital is not a scary place after all.
