Services Provided

We provide the community with outreach programs for children and families that provide information on family health services and community partners while holding fun events to help children learn more about their own "wellness." We collaborate with other organizations at the Heritage College to help further their missions and bring awareness to the profession of osteopathic medicine. This year, we are incorporating philanthropy at the Bobcat CareFair, where money will be donated to local high schools to help cover the cost of ACT tests for teens with financial needs. Lastly, we are hoping to partner with other organizations to gather items needed at essential day cares during COVID-19.

Tentative Schedule 2020-2021

We do not yet have dates for the events, but we plan to have four speakers/panels, with two in the fall and two in the spring. We will hold our annual Bobcat CareFair in the fall, and have two mini-CareFair events at local schools (one in fall and one in spring). In addition, we are partnering with the Hilliard library to hold holiday-themed events focused on wellness for children and their parents (one in fall and one in spring). All of this will be funded by our yearly dues and fundraisers. The fundraisers will be pie-baking at winter break and ice cream in the spring, tentatively.
