Wearing surgical masks, gloves and caps, kindergartners at Aquebogue Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District pretended to diagnose and treat their teddy bear patients with gauze and medical tape during a teddy bear clinic on Feb. 26.

Volunteers from Stony Brook Children’s Hospital attended the event to speak with the students about the importance of being responsible and taking care of themselves. Students also took part in a discussion on car and bicycle safety.
