Pediatric Day Sept. 12, 2020
Sep 12th @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Discovery Park of America and Pediatric Place of Union City are partnering on Sept. 12, 2020 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. to provide information about a wealth of resources and services available to children in this area. There will be vendors and organizations located throughout the park with information, fun activities for kids and plenty of swag for both children and adults during Pediatric Day at Discovery Park of America.
“This is an opportunity for parents to learn the latest in health trends, educational resources and special services available for children and their families,” said Dr. John Bates, pediatrician at the Pediatric Place in Union City. “We envision kids, parents and grandparents coming together for a fun day to learn more about how to keep their kids happy, healthy and safe.”
As the sponsor of Pediatric Day, Pediatric Place of Union City is paying the admission for all children ages 17 and under. “We want to encourage families to come to Pediatric Day together to explore all the resources we have in the area to enrich their lives,” Bates said.
According to Polly Brasher who works in education at the park, there will be everything from ambulances to helicopters at Discovery Park on Pediatric Day. “Our mission at Discovery Park is to inspire children and adults to discover new things in a fun and interactive way. We want children to climb into the back of an ambulance, get in the life-flight helicopter and be up close to firetrucks and emergency personal,” Brasher said. “So, then, if they ever have to experience an emergency transport, maybe they won’t be so scared.”
