Batesville High School Senior Key Club members, Zoraida Medina and Mary-Kate Wilson donated several trauma dolls for the Pediatric Unit at White River Medical Center.  The girls made the dolls as a service project during the Mo-Ark (Missouri-Arkansas) District Key Club Leadership Conference in Springfield, Missouri.  

The trauma doll, which can be colored on, is used as an educational tool. Children can use the dolls to communicate to clinical care givers where they may be experiencing pain.  As patients recover, they can finish coloring the dolls and take it home as a keepsake.
