NICU reunion for families Sunday

8:05 a.m. EDT, September 24, 2011
SOUTH BEND - Memorial Children’s Hospital will host its annual Newborn Intensive Care Unit Family Reunion from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at Memorial’s HealthWorks! Kids’ Museum, 111 W. Jefferson Blvd.

Children and families who have been cared for at Memorial’s NICU are welcome to celebrate the lives of those children who have been a part of the Memorial NICU family.

At 1:30 p.m., a Kohl’s representative will present an oversized check for $107,998, representing a grant to HealthWorks! for an outreach childhood obesity prevention program called Kohl’s Fit Festival.

Just an observation, Having a premature child who spent several months in the NICU at Memorial, I find it strange that they would use the reunion to present a check to be use toward "Childhood Obesity." One of the biggest concerns in the NICU is putting weight on this babies and getting them healthy enough to go home.
