Hospitals and doctor’s offices can be scary places for kids. To help reduce that fear, UnityPoint Clinic Family Medicine and Walk-in Care - Peosta is holding an upcoming Teddy Bear Clinic as part of Peosta Days.  On Saturday, August 26, UnityPoint Clinic will be onsite during the Kids Fun Run to provide “check-ups” on stuffed animals. 

Children and families are invited to bring their favorite teddy bear or stuffed animal to the clinic tent near the Peosta Community Centre from 8:30-10:30 a.m. to meet UnityPoint Clinic providers who will provide a check-up for their stuffed animal. 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.
