Doctors Express Participated In CAAEYC Fall Conference

Friday, October 25, 2013

More than 300 preschool and early childhood educators and leaders gathered for the annual Chattanooga Area Association for the Education of Young Children (CAAEYC) Fall Conference on the campus of Boyd-Buchannan School. Among the vendors at the event was Doctors Express, which provided information about pediatric urgent care for children six months and older.  

"We were proud to serve and equip the amazing men and women who care for our community’s youngest members by participating in this event,” said Jack Fromm, Doctors Express partner. “It was a privilege to work alongside Michelle Kelly, coordinator Southeast Child Care Resource and Referral, who assisted with the coordination of this event, to provide information and resources to child care providers and educators.” 

“It is important to offer high quality care to even the youngest patients,” said Joe Kugler, Doctors Express business development manager. “Doctors Express provides everything from urgent care to vaccinations to treatment for colds and flu. And after each visit, a full medical report is given to the parent or guardian so that it can be shared directly with the patient’s pediatrician, so parents can be confident that their child is receiving seamless care.”  

In addition to sharing health care information, Doctors Express representatives also gave event attendees first aid items such as bandages, sanitizer spray, hot and cold packs as well as many other health care related items and participated in the Expo’s iPad giveaway.
