All parents feel a little bit anxious taking a child to the doctor, even when that “child” is just a stuffed bear.

Children ages 2-11 can bring their favorite toy in for a check-up at the Community Health Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Allen Community College Activities Building (the gray barn) at 1801 N. Cottonwood St. The health fair features more than 50 booths covering a wide variety of health concerns.

The purpose of the Teddy bear clinic is to allow children to role-play in a way that reduces their fears and makes them feel empowered the next time they go to the doctor.
