HEALTH EDUCATION - PUBLIC PROGRAMMING
Discovery Cart Volunteers
Help the exhibits come alive! Staff a mobile information station where Museum guests can choose to briefly interact with a ‘real live’ person inside the exhibits. Carts include a variety of models and demonstrations featuring the circulatory system, respiratory system and general nutrition.
Health Fair Volunteers
