21st Annual Teddy Bear Clinic

Experience the friendly face of medicine at the Teddy Bear Clinic, staged as a mini-hospital under the tents for children ages 3 through 12 with accompanying adults. Visit with Greenwich Hospital doctors, nurses, technicians and other staff during this interactive day of learning.

Children are encouraged to bring a favorite stuffed animal or doll for an exam. Depending on the diagnosis, dolls, bears and other fuzzy patients may receive splints, stitches, surgery or X-rays. Kids can peer through a microscope, climb aboard an ambulance, and test their balance by negotiating an obstacle course. Families can learn about nutritious foods, sun protection, sports safety and other healthy habits.

Free parking in the hospital’s staff lot on Lake Avenue. Walk-ins welcome.
