Since 1983, the Kobacker Center, a UT Medical Center facility, has been northwest Ohio’s only hospital devoted to treating the emotional and behavioral needs of children and teens.

All 48 patients enrolled in the Kobacker Day Treatment Program and their family members are encouraged to attend the Family Health Fair Thursday, Jan. 14, from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Kobacker Center on Health Science Campus.

The health fair will feature free resources and information from several University and UT Medical Center departments, including Pharmacy and Cardiology, and the Wellness Center, among others.

Operated in cooperation with the Toledo Public Schools, the Day Treatment Program provides care for emotionally disturbed and behaviorally challenged children between the ages of 5 and 12. In addition, the program includes a partial hospitalization component certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health.

This free health fair is only open to patients and family members associated with the Kobacker Center.

For more information on the Kobacker Center, contact Denise Kidder, clinical director of the center, at 419.383.3829.
