The Doc Mobile multi-city tour is bringing Disney Junior’s acclaimed animated series “Doc McStuffins” to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History on Friday, September 6 from 10 AM to 4 pm with a custom 27-foot Airstream trailer modeled after Doc’s playhouse clinic, featuring empowering experiences relating to health and nutrition for kids (age 2-7) and families.
Real-life doctors from Artemis Medical Society – an organization of more than 2900 women physicians of color from around the world who formed their group after seeing a reflection of themselves in “Doc McStuffins” – will be on hand to meet kids and parents. Dallas-based emergency room physician and Artemis Medical Society founding member Dr. Myiesha Taylor will be in attendance with 15 of her colleagues.
The FREE event features an area for kids to perform a “check-up” on their own toys plus other activities and age-appropriate health and wellness lessons including nutrition and physical development and fitness. (Fans are invited to follow The Doc Mobile tour route on Disney Junior’s Facebook page and on Twitter at @DisneyJuniorUSA, #DocMobile).
In addition to performing “check-ups” on their own toys at the five interactive stations located inside Doc’s Mobile Clinic, kids can:
- Play in “Stuffy’s Imagination Playground“
- Get active in “Doc’s Stretch & Flex” area
- Learn about the importance of drinking water at “Lenny’s Hydration Station”
- Understand how to create a healthy balanced plate at “Doc’s Picnic Time”
