Kindergartners at John Pearl and Edith L. Slocum elementary schools recently transformed into doctors for an afternoon during the “Teddy Bear Clinic,” a traveling injury prevention program sponsored by the Trauma Center at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. Following a lesson on car and helmet safety, the kindergarten clinicians suited up in medical garb to care for stuffed their animal “patients,” while learning the essentials of keeping their fuzzy friends safe and healthy.
