Peds Residents Assess Teddy Bears

Barrie Bostick, MD, Melissa Rice, MD, and Ashley Strobel, MD, all EM/Peds residents, participated in the Teddy Bear Clinic at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center on Saturday, May 30. Dozens of children and their teddy bears experienced the full emergency department treatment, from registration and triage to the examination and the use of splints and nebulizers, as required. This semi-annual community outreach program helps to demystify the emergency medicine process for children and their parents.
