Eastside Baby Corner’s eighth annual Helping Kids Thrive luncheon starts at noon, Wednesday, Nov. 15, at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. The theme for this event, the organization’s only fundraiser this year, is“Simple ideas for brighter futures.”
Dr. Benjamin Hoffman, M.D. at the Oregon Health & Science University will be the keynote speaker for the luncheon. Hoffman has been a certified car seat technician for almost 20 years and he has done significant research about child passenger safety.
According to Hoffman, “A number of studies have shown that an incorrect angle or recline can lead to injury to babies, especially if too upright, as the baby’s head can flop forward and obstruct the airway.”
This event is free to attend and open to the public, but reservations are required. Make reservations at www.babycorner.org/helping-kids-thrive-luncheon.
