Wayland boy attends Joslin’s Teddy Bear Clinic

Will Collett of Wayland was among the dozens of young pediatric patients living with diabetes and their families and friends who attended

Joslin Diabetes Center’s 16th annual Teddy Bear Clinic over the weekend. The event is a fun, interactive opportunity for young patients living with Type 1 diabetes to learn about diabetes and help them feel comfortable with the health care experiences that come with managing it.  Alongside Joslin’s doctors and child life specialists, teenage Joslin patients and students from local Boston colleges volunteered to staff the event.

Each child at Joslin’s clinic had the opportunity to pick a teddy bear and learn how to care for their new friend as visited various stations with their bear’s medical record. Stations included measuring the bear’s height with a ruler, weighing their bear, taking its blood pressure, checking their bear’s blood sugar and giving it insulin if needed, taking it grocery shopping for healthy foods and giving it an eye exam in the Joslin eye clinic.
