Have you ever wondered what it would be like to step inside the human body? Attend Goshen Health’s free Head-To-Toe Health Experience on Friday, April 28, to get a fun, up-close-and-personal look at how your body works.
The MEGA Body and Lungs are larger-than-life, inflated walk-through models of the body. They’re a great way for kids and adults alike to learn about their bodily systems and organs. At 12 feet high and up to 50 feet long, these interactive exhibits will teach you about health problems affecting every main organ, including the teeth, brain, heart, lungs, bones and skin, and how you can avoid them. The MEGA Lungs exhibit goes into detail about the critical organs of the respiratory system and the common ailments that affect it.
With obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other illnesses on the rise in kids and adults, it’s more important than ever to develop healthy eating and exercise habits early on. The MEGA Body and Lungs helps you do just that by reinforcing the importance of nutrition and regular physical activity for keeping your body healthy.
