Free Health Care Screenings for Birmingham’s Youth at Annual "Take a Child to the Doctor Day"
On Saturday, September 11, 2010, the City of Birmingham Mayor’s Office Division of Youth Services (DYS) will host its annual "Take a Child to the Doctor Day" event at Fair Park Arena. Designed to serve uninsured and under-insured youth up to 18 years old, this FREE community event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Health screening benefits the overall health of the child. It is through checkups and tests that physicians can identify potential health problems that can be corrected before becoming major health issues.
Area youth, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, can receive health screenings in vision, dental, and general health. The services will be provided by medical staff from Children’s Health System and UAB Health System-Department of Pediatrics.
This is not your ordinary trip to the doctor. While the focus is on providing quality health screenings for youth, there will also be something for the whole family. Enjoy food, games, prizes and much more while helping your child learn healthy living habits which can last a lifetime.
