We plan programs to meet the needs of individuals of all ages.
SafeSitters is designed for 11,12, and 13 year olds to learn to baby-sit with safety in mind for themselves and for the children they baby-sit. The class was developed by Dr. Patricia Keener, a pediatrician in Indiana and is taught here by certified instructors who are RNs and parents themselves.
Better sitters today& Better parents tomorrow.

Lincoln County Medical Center activities are in partnership with The Heart Truth, a national awareness campaign warning women about their risk of heart disease. The campaign is sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and other partner organizations. We hope you will join us for the annual event held in February.
