Timber Point's Teddy Bear Clinic


Kindergartners at Timber Point recently learned first aid and safety basics with the help of teddy bears and the Division of Trauma and Emergency Medicine at Northwell Health’s Southside Hospital.

At the hospital’s annual Teddy Bear Clinic at Timber Point, held over two days on April 13 and 14, the students brought in teddy bears or other stuffed animals, which were used as “patients” to teach the children familiarity with first aid and medical equipment. Southside program managers Tim Dackow and Angela Scimone also discussed pool safety and the necessity of wearing bike helmets.
