Lending a Healing Hand

Lending a Healing Hand

Kindergarten students at Idle Hour Elementary School recently had the chance to dress up like emergency room doctors and learn important safety lessons as part of a “Teddy Bear Clinic” workshop led by representatives from Stony Brook University Hospital.

During the interactive program, the students learned important everyday safety tips and acted like doctors as they tended to their stuffed animals. With the help of the trained medical professionals, they were shown how to administer first aid to minor injuries by applying bandages, braces and splints.
