Educational summer events part of year-long sponsorship by FastMed
Phoenix, AZ, June 1, 2016 – FastMed Urgent Care, the second largest and fastest growing independent urgent care organization in the U.S., will participate in the Children’s Museum Tucson’s S.T.E.A.M. Sundays this summer as part of a broader year-long partnership with the museum. This engaging program focused on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (“S.T.E.A.M.”) runs for 16 weeks on Sundays, 10am-2pm, and FastMed will be part of the next S.T.E.A.M. event on Sunday, June 5th.
“Our mission is to positively impact the lives of our patients and their families, and that commitment extends beyond the medical care we provide within our clinics,” said Kyle A. Bohannon, President & CEO of FastMed. “We are excited to partner with the Children’s Museum Tucson to bring fun, educational programs that support the overall health and advancement of the community’s youth.”
To encourage the whole family to participate, admission is reduced to $2 per person on S.T.E.A.M. Sundays, which occur every Sunday through September 4th. FastMed will bring engaging activities that help children not only understand more about why taking care of their health is important, but also introduce youngsters to careers in healthcare.
“Support from partners like FastMed enables us to create innovative programs for our visitors,” said Michael Luria, executive director of the Children’s Museum Tucson. “We believe it’s an important part of our mission to educate children on the benefits of good health and inspire them to pursue careers in healthcare, so we are thrilled to have FastMed as a community partner.”
