Grand Strand Health will host their 5th Annual Baby & Children’s Health Fair on Saturday, October 27 from 11am – 2pm near HealthFinders inside Coastal Grand Mall beside Dillard’s.
The health system invites those who are thinking about having a baby, pregnant, have children or grandchildren to meet team members of Grand Strand Health’s maternity, pediatric and nutrition departments, physician practices and local family focused community organizations. “The benefit to parents and those who are interested in having a baby is the wealth of information they will receive,” states Pediatric Medical Director David Rosenberg, MD. “They can ask questions to our team members and physicians while their children are having fun trick-or-treating with us.”
Booths at the health fair will include infant care and safety, breastfeeding, medication safety, infant CPR demo, nutrition, safe sleeping for infants, respiratory care, child life, pet therapy, car seat and bike safety, poison control and gun safety. Children are encouraged to bring their favorite stuffed animal to the Pediatric ER booth for a “check-up” and learn about flu prevention. This helps make any future ER visits more comfortable and less scary for children by allowing them to experience the “check-up” through the eyes of their fuzzy friend.
A costume contest will be held during the fair at 12:30pm. Entry forms will be provided the day of the health fair and are required to participate. There will also be appearances from superheroes, a prince and a princess throughout the event. For more information call (843) 839-9933.
