Doc McStuffins Mobile Tour Has Hit the Road!

Now that Emily is getting older, she is much more aware of what is going on around her, including what's on television. She repeats things, and she's learning how to do new things every day. It's important to me that what she's watching is going to have some value to it. Children's shows have changed a lot since I was little, and Doc McStuffins surprised me when it became one we enjoyed together.

Great news for all the other Doc fans out there! The Doc Mobile might be coming to a city near you!

The Doc Mobile, a 27-foot Airstream trailer custom-made to reach young kids (age 2-7) and families with fun and empowering experiences relating to health and nutrition will embark on a multi-city tour  SUNDAY, AUGUST 18 in Boston. Themed "So Much You Can Do…to Take Care of You!" the initiative is inspired by Disney Junior's acclaimed "Doc McStuffins," the animated series that models good health and compassion through stories of a young girl, a would-be doctor, who cares for her ailing stuffed animals and other toys. The Doc Mobile features an area for kids to perform a "check-up" on their own toys plus other activities and age-appropriate health and wellness lessons including nutrition and physical development and fitness.

During the multi-city tour, kids and parents will also have the opportunity to meet real-life doctors from the Artemis Medical Society, an organization of more than 2500 female African-American physicians from around the world who formed their group after seeing a reflection of themselves in "Doc McStuffins." Recognizing the opportunity to further inspire young girls, the group serves to nurture, mentor and provide the foundation necessary to create a diverse physician workforce.
