LifeWorks Family Fun Day
Sep 15 10:00 AM - 01:00 PM
LifeWorks Building - Michigan City
Michigan City and surrounding communities are invited to a day of family fun wrapped in a healthy theme, complete with free health screenings, a Teddy bear clinic, lunch, bounce houses, and the opportunity to meet new providers at the LifeWorks Building in Michigan City.
The LifeWorks Family Fun Day will be from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Sept. 15, at LifeWorks, 3777 N. Frontage Road, Michigan City. This full-service health campus includes CareExpress urgent care, women’s care, primary care, lab, X-Ray and diagnostic imaging, wellness and rehabilitation services, pediatric care, cardiology care, and ophthalmology care conveniently under one roof. The event will feature tours of all the areas, and is free and open to the public.
A highlight of the event will be the Teddy Bear Clinic, which teaches children about healthcare treatments and healthy habits. Friendly staff will lead groups of children and their bears to stations where they can learn about X-rays, stitches, taking temperatures, and more. Bring your own teddy or stuffed animal, or grab one of ours to take home (while supplies last).
The community will also have the opportunity to meet LifeWorks’ newest primary care doctor, Scott Gogulski, D.O., and others from the new pediatric office that opened there in July. Free screenings for the day will include blood pressure, diabetes, and eye chart. Pediatric physical and occupational therapists will be on hand to provide useful information about stages of childhood development so parents can glean whether their children are on the right track for social and physical growth. Tours will be provided of the facility as well.
The Michigan City Police Department will be on hand to provide family safety information and child DNA kits, and South Shore Oven Works will provide delicious and healthy pizzas in fun shapes and sizes.
