Visitors to this year’s Almond Blossom Festival in Ripon will be able to take a walk through a giant human heart! The walk-through heart exhibit, which is especially popular with children, will be on display Feb. 22-24, 2019. Timely for American Heart Month – this free, interactive exhibit is designed to educate visitors about the importance of heart health. It includes interactive questions about heart function and a heart-healthy lifestyle. The exhibit, which is wheel-chair and stroller accessible and air-conditioned, will be located straight down from the main entrance.
This is a fun exhibit for children and families to explore, but it also serves a very serious educational purpose. Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of both men and women in the United States, so raising public awareness of cardiovascular disease is critical.
Doctors Medical Center and Doctors Hospital of Manteca are proud to sponsor the Almond Blossom Festival and provide this heart exhibit for community members to explore.
