Teddy Bears As Teachers

Some pre-schoolers are receiving health education from teddy bears. As part of Pitt Community College's "Healthy Teddy Project," pre-school children learn various health care issues using teddy bears as their teachers. At a ceremony Friday afternoon, the children adopted their bears, while parents learned how these stuffed animals can make their little ones health savvy. P.C.C. nursing will be responsible for teaching the program. This yearlong project is being funded through a $4,700 grant provided by the Eastern Area Health Education Centers program.
