Children can bring in one of their stuffed dolls or animals to receive

or tattered arms and legs. Health System team members will also demonstrate
a variety of medical treatments a child may encounter while at the doctor’s
office or hospital.
Car Seat Safety Checks
Certified child passenger safety technicians from Safe Kids Kingsland will
be set up in the parking lot to perform safety checks on booster and infant
car seats to determine if they are correctly installed and appropriate
for the age and size of the child.
Attendees are encouraged to bring all medications, including prescriptions,
supplements, for a one-on-one review with a licensed pharmacist to answer
questions and discuss possible side effects or medication interactions.
