Welcome to the Official Website of the 2023 International Kangaroo Care Awareness Day (May 15)

Avera McKennan Hospital in South Dakota is Celebrating Kangaroo Care Day!

"I just wanted to share a picture of what I will be wearing on May 15 to kick off our International Kangaroo Care Awareness Day.

Several of us plan to wear these and hand out candy to everyone entering the hospital that morning and then we will head upstairs to our unit for the rest of the day and our other festivities.

I am planning on having local media coverage as well to spread the word and so our community can share in the celebration."
