A Day for Children is Nova Southeastern University’s annual health literacy event to be held on Saturday, October 21st, and hosted by the NSU Alvin Sherman Library. For nearly 20 years, more than 100,000 residents have attended the event to receive and learn about basic medical information to help them make informed decisions for their children and families. Health care education and activities for vision, medical, speech, behavior, and dental health as well as physical and occupational therapy will be provided through NSU Health Centers. Students and faculty from several of NSU's colleges and centers will provide activities for the children attending this event. In addition to NSU Health's clinical options, there will be government agencies, for-profit and non-profit healthcare options.
A Day for Children isn't just informative and impactful, it's fun! Several performers, including KidVision's Miss Penny and Clifford the Big Red Dog, the South Florida Cloggers, Broward Center Spotlights, the Girl Choir, and This is Improv, will entertain the audience.
Children will be able to take pictures with Clifford, get their faces painted, design crafts, and play soccer. A circus performance will be offered by the Florida Children's Theatre, and local law enforcement and first responders will participate in activities.
Alvin Sherman Library cards will be available for children and their families from NSU Library staff. The library also will be giving away Free books while supplies last.
Our community's food security poses an extreme threat to the well-being of children and their families. The good news is Feeding South Florida will be distributing food at this year's event. Free pizza and hot dogs also will be served courtesy of Hungry Howies.
