Last Thursday, hundreds of kids visited Michigan Medicine for a chance to learn, play and check out the commitment their parents or grandparents make to patient care, education and research.

It was all part of Bring Your Child to Work Day across the organization.

Among the organized activities was a Teddy Bear Clinic at the North Campus Research Complex, where kids could perform “surgery” on a stuffed animal. Others at NCRC got to tour a police car, ambulance and fire truck, learn self-defense skills and find out about healthy eating from MHealthy experts.

On the main medical campus, children got hands-on experience with manikins in the Clinical Simulation Center and the Pediatric Surgery and Pediatric Anesthesiology Departments hosted 24 kids who received presentations from various specialists at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.

Still more got to swing by offices and workspaces to catch a glimpse of their parents’ daily life.

Check out the photo gallery above for a look back at the festivities, and congratulations to the following employees who will bring home a prize for sending in their Bring Your Child to Work Day photos! A member of the Department of Communication will be in touch shortly to help you claim your prize.
