MedExpress is proud to support our local communities by providing resources that educate children about the importance of healthy habits and more. We are excited to partner with schools, daycares, and extracurricular groups in our neighborhoods.
Our five unique programs – Teddy Bear Clinics, Build Your Own First Aid Kit, Germy Hands, Survive with ME, and Career Day – can be brought to your location and are provided free of charge by MedExpress team members. Additionally, a virtual version of the Germy Hands program is available upon request.
We also offer Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts the opportunity to earn their MedExpress First Aid Patch during a tour of one of our centers.
If your group is interested in any of our free community programs, please complete this request form.
The Germy Hands Program teaches children about what a virus is, how it spreads, and the importance of healthy habits – including basic hygiene, such as hand washing and sneezing into your elbow.
Our helpful team members lead classes or groups of children through a demonstration and help them to learn proper handwashing techniques. We also offer a virtual version that teachers can implement themselves in the classroom or virtual learning environment.
The Germy Hands Program is ideal for children ages 3-10.
Teddy Bear Clinics
Our Teddy Bear Clinics teach children about basic healthcare treatments and what to expect when visiting the doctor through the help of a teddy bear and a fun children’s book.
Our warm and welcoming team members will lead classes or groups of children as they learn about hand washing, X-rays, medical tools, and much more. Kids are also encouraged to bring along their own stuffed and fuzzy friends and follow along.
Teddy Bear Clinics are ideal for children ages 3-8.
First Aid and Safety for Scouts
Scouts can earn their MedExpress patch by participating in our First Aid and Safety Demonstration.
This free program teaches children about basic first aid and illness prevention. Scouts are able to experience a tour of a local MedExpress center, or we can come to you − whether it’s a summer camp, day camp, or scout meeting!
Build Your Own First Aid Kit
The Build Your Own First Aid Kit program educates children about basic first aid and injury prevention. Our friendly team members lead demonstrations that teach children about how people get sick, how to prevent the spread of germs, and when to visit the doctor.
Kids are then able to build their own first aid kit complete with bandages, gauze, antibiotic ointment, and gloves.
Build Your Own First Aid Kit workshops are ideal for children ages 4-14.
Survive with ME
Our Survive with ME Program is an activity that incorporates hands-on learning to educate middle or high school-aged children on the importance of hydration and sun safety. Our warm and welcoming team members will facilitate a scenario that allows older children an opportunity to test their knowledge and survival skills.
Survive with ME is ideal for children ages 11-18.
Our Career Day Program educates middle or high school-aged children on careers available in the healthcare industry. Our helpful team members will also discuss the educational requirements for each career, as well as the basics of insurance.
Career Day is ideal for children ages 11-18.
