Children in ChildCareGroup’s early care and education programs are getting a healthy start, with the help of volunteers from Brookhaven College and and Dallas Filipino Lions Club!
At the beginning of each school year, ChildCareGroup provides health screenings to all of the 3-5 year old children who attend our Center Programs. We screen heights, weights, blood pressure, hemoglobin, hearing and vision.
For the second year, we are excited to partner with the Brookhaven College Nursing Program, who not only assisted with the screenings but also provided entertaining educational presentations to the children.
Thank you to Crystal Garzda, Tracey Hobbs and Joyce Swegle, the nursing faculty, and more than 30 nursing students for volunteering their time and nursing skills!
This year, for the first time, we are excited to partner with Dallas Filipino Lions Club Foundation, who provided the free vision screenings for our children using a new breakthrough vision screening device called ‘SPOT’ by Pediavision. SPOT can assess a child’s vision with unmatched speed, accuracy and deliver immediate comprehensive results.
Thank you to Vinod and Gloria Mathur, Fred Henkel and Maria Theresa Cruz for volunteering your time and expertise!
