Tonawanda News — The exhibit will be up through September and will incorporate special visits by health coaches from Independent Health, a sponsor of the “Vital” show at Buffalo Museum of Science.
“This exhibit is a valuable way to learn about the potential of your body and how best to overcome life-threatening diseases through informed choices and lifestyle changes,” said Michael W. Cropp, president and CEO of Independent Health. “This exhibit and our partnership with the Buffalo Museum of Science align with our efforts to engage and educate Western New Yorkers on the benefits of adopting healthy lifestyles to create a culture of health in our community.”
Roswell Park Cancer Institute will also be involved with special programming. An as-yet-to-be-determined schedule of special programming can be found on the Buffalo Museum of Science’s website at www.sciencebuff.org.
To further expand education about the body, museum officials are encouraging guests to visit the Explore YOU permanent science studio, which opened a year ago.
“It’s a natural progression from Body Worlds,” said Lisa Roy, BMS director of development and external relations.
The Explore YOU gallery was the first of eight permanent science studios to be opened at the museum over the next few years. The third studio, In Motion, is scheduled to open in June.IF YOU GO • WHAT: Body Worlds "Vital" • WHEN: Begins Friday and runs through September. • WHERE: Buffalo Museum of Science, 1020 Humboldt Parkway, Buffalo • MORE INFORMATION: Call 896-5200, or visit www.sciencebuff.org
