Nobody likes to go to an emergency room, unless it's for a tour! Austin Emergency Center offers family-friendly events at their three locations. We like to go to the one on South Lamar. Our kids learn about the importance of an ER in our community. They learn about X-Rays and CAT scans as well as stings and bites.
Exposing them to an ER in a non-threatening situation might help them relax if they ever need to go to an ER. Especially since they know that the people inside are as nice and helpful as we found out! Some of our kids were interested in health careers. This is a great place to come and ask about them.
