Be Well. A Family Day to Learn, Play & Grow Together
South Central Foundation has planned a new event for families in the community – Be Well: A Family Day to Learn, Play and Grow Together. The event will take place on Saturday, May 20th at South Central Place in Laurel.
Patricia Tibbs, MD, a Pediatrician at South Central Regional Medical Center explains the importance of the event. “Children are our future and their health is so important. As a parent it can be difficult to navigate the developmental stages and what is available locally for families. Be Well is a day for parents and children to come together to learn, play and grow together. This event will provide education, resources and fun activities to engage families. The goal is to help parents with local resources on childhood development.”
Be Well is a free event that will take place at South Central Place in Laurel. The event will feature topics for parents on Psychology, Developmental Stages, Teenage Struggles, Lifestyle Management, Health and Wellness.
Keynote speaker for the event is Susan Buttross, MD, Medical Director and Professor for UMMC School of Medicine and Pediatrics.
Along with parental information, children ages 5 and up will learn through interactive sessions at the event. Many activities are planned for the children. Those include: Fire Safety Course, Ambulance and Fire Truck Tours, Be Your Best Self Mobile Classroom, Nurture Our Future Brain Bus, Sports Performance+ Jr., Arts and Crafts and more.
“This event is offered to all families in our community at no cost,” states Dr. Tibbs. “This event is funded by the South Central Health Care Foundation. The goal of the South Central Foundation is to improve community health and provide health resources to those who need it most.”
Be Well will be held Saturday, May 20th, at South Central Place in Laurel from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. For more information about the event, please contact South Central Regional Medical Center at 601-399-0501.
