Mini Medical Family Day
Saturday, October 1, 2016, 12:00 – 2:00pm
Larrick Student Center, 900 Turpin Street

Come join us on October 1st for an afternoon of fun on Mini Medical Family Day! On this day children between the ages of 3 and 10 will have the chance to communicate with physicians to help reduce the anxiety that often comes with doctor visits, while having a ton of fun! First enjoy being greeted by Rodney the Ram. Then, have a blast with activities such as story time, caricatures, balloons, face painting, blood pressure check, and a basketball activity (ages 8-10 only), along with giveaways and snacks! Backpacks will also be given away until we run out. It is a requirement that parents remain with their children at all times. Come and enjoy this FREE event! There will be guest parking in the Eighth Street Parking Deck, with tickets validated.

Although the event is free we ask you to register at www.go.vcu.edu/mini-medical
