The health emphasis in America is shifting from curing disease to preventing it. Through 34 interactive workstations, this hands-on exhibition is designed to give visitors the knowledge to become actively engaged in improving their own health by answering such questions as: How many times does the heart beat in an hour? How long does it take for a cut to heal? How many skin cells does a body replace every minute?
Organized by the Still National Osteopathic Museum & Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine.
