Children can get a basic checkup before going back to school through an upcoming wellness initiative at the Mt Hope Women’s Hospital.
It is being facilitated by the North Central Regional Health Authority (NCRHA) from 9am to 2pm tomorrow (Saturday 24th August, 2019).
It says this follows on from two prior initiatives that were specifically designed to target men and women.
The services being offered tomorrow include hearing and vision screening, dental checkups and vaccines.
There will also be sessions with back-to-school tips for teachers and activities like fun stations, petting zoos, face painting and storytelling.
