Disney Jr.'s loveable pint-sized doctor, Doc McStuffins, is coming to Atlanta on Saturday September 14 for a free event in Centennial Olympic Park. The “Doc Mobile” has made stops all over the country and will be parked at the downtown park from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The custom 27-foot Airstream trailer modeled after Doc's playhouse clinic on the show features simulated health screenings (for stuffed animals, dolls and toys) to acquaint kids age 2-7 with regular check-ups, an activity circuit and other smart health practices.
“Doc McStuffins,” which has garnered a strong fan base among families, also has drawn a groundswell of support from women physicians of color. Seeing reflections of their childhood selves in Doc, a dozen women physicians of color were inspired to form the Artemis Medical Society, a first-of-its-kind organization designed to nurture and mentor women of color to pursue careers in medicine. More than 2,900 female physicians of color from around the world currently belong to the organization, and more than 30 doctors from the Artemis Medical Society will be in Atlanta, meeting kids and parents and talking about the importance of teaching kids about self-care and healthy lifestyles.
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”
Season two of “Doc McStuffins” premieres FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6 on Disney Channel (10:00 a.m., ET/PT) and Disney Junior (4:00 p.m., ET/PT).
