Under the slogan “Everyone with a Finger on the Pulse”, International Child’s Day at Schneider Children’s was aimed to raise awareness about the importance of being alert to the prevention and presence of distress and injury in children. A presentation was made at the hospital by Adv.

Among the activities that were arranged in the lobby of the hospital, were photographs of children and parents printed on magnets with the slogan “Finger on the Pulse”, printed materials regarding preventing distress in children and utilizing proper communication and listening skills. Children received a booklet entitled “Cutie Pie for the Child” prepared by the Committee at Schneider Children’s which included fun activities and information.
