Teddy Bear Clinic Held

   A Teddy Bear Clinic was held for Preschool and Kindergarten students at St. Joseph Elementary School on February 14. Student nurses from the University of Central Arkansas, under the direction of Dr.Julie Meaux, provided a comforting environment for these children and their stuffed animals that were treated as imaginary patients.
   Each child described their animals' ailments. The nurses then x-rayed, bandaged or inoculated them while assuring the children their animals would recuperate. This was all done to give the student nurses hands-on training while making the kids feel at ease about the prospect of seeking medical attention themselves.
