Media Advisory -- Halloween Fun

Student Health Services at Southern Illinois University Carbondale will celebrate Halloween by treating children from SIU’s Rainbow’s End Child Development Center to some special fun on Friday, Oct. 28. Reporters, photographers and news crews are welcome to cover the activities.

Some of the young children from Rainbow’s End, wearing their Halloween costumes, will visit the Student Health Center building, located at 374 E. Grand Ave. in Carbondale, between 9:30 and 10 a.m. They will enjoy trick-or-treating in the lobby and then go to the office of Dr. Ted Grace, director of Student Health Services, in Room 278. Grace and the children, with the help of a skeleton named Oscar, will have a lively discussion about the bones in a human body.

Many of the Student Health Services staff will be in costume that day and there will also be a public medical education presentation entitled “About Faces, Masks of Disease” from 8 to 9:30 a.m. the Student Health Center’s auditorium.
