Teddy Bear Picnic

Teddy Bear Picnic

At this free, family-friendly event on MSU's campus, children can bring their favorite stuffed animals for a check-up at the Blue Cross Blue Shield Teddy Bear Hospital, a mock clinic staffed by physicians and students from MSU’s health colleges. The annual event was created to help children overcome the fear of “going to the doctor” in a fun, safe environment.

While you're there, be sure to stop by all the booths for face painting, music and dancing, activities with MSU athletes, balloon animals, healthy snacks and much more!
