This summer, the whole family will be able to get hands-on with their health with the Evansville Museum’s exhibition HEALTHY IS FOR EVERYONE: AN INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE FOR THE TRI-STATE, generously sponsored by Deaconess. 

This exhibition, built upon the foundation of data collected from the 2015 Tri-State Health Survey commissioned by the Welborn Baptist Foundation, will take an in-depth look at health in the Tri-State in a family-friendly, interactive and educational way. Debuting July 1 and departing September 16, 2018, this major Old Gallery exhibition should not be missed!

Featuring local data, personal stories and community resources, the exhibition will feature topics including the top three health concerns and the top four preventable risk factors for the Tri-State. Guests also will discover how Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois stack up in comparison to the rest of the nation.

Appealing to anyone who wants to learn more about how to improve their health and taking the mantra “healthy is for everyone” to heart, the exhibition will reveal how age, ethnicity, income level and other demographic factors may affect our health. By exploring resources and input from local medical experts, guests will discover what they personally can do to improve their well-being.

In addition, the exhibition will examine the Tri-State’s healthcare legacy while celebrating the future with the opening of the Multi-Institutional Academic Health Science & Research Center. The exhibition will feature artifacts from the Museum’s collection showcasing our healthcare past.

Accompanying the exhibition will be a series of engaging community programs that will be held on #YourThursdayNights! and Free Fridays.

On Saturday, July 28, the Super Saturday theme will be Blood & Guts, featuring hands-on family-friendly activities centered around health and medicine. Be sure to follow the Evansville Museum on social media for the latest program updates!

As part of the community exhibit, Healthy is for Everyone, Urban Seeds will be offering cooking demonstrations on free family admission nights, Thursdays July 5th and July 19th, and on Friday September 7th at 6 PM.

The focus of the cooking demos is to highlight locally-grown produce and how to prepare affordable, cooked-from-scratch meals that are vibrant and delicious! Local “chef” Robin Mallery will share her signature 90-Minutes of Kitchen Zen™ techniques which promote efficient cooking and showcase the preparation of foundation ingredients that can be used in the creation of several meals throughout the week. Robin, as a Registered Nurse and health coach, uses her strong background in “food as medicine” as a framework for incorporating plant foods into each meal.

These cooking demos, sponsored by Urban Seeds (http://urbanseeds.org), will allow participants to also enjoy locally grown scrumptious small bites!
