As part of American Heart Month, the American Heart Association will showcase the importance of heart health and provide tips to lead a healthy lifestyle. The Maryland Science Center’s head chef will demonstrate how to make a healthy meal as well as detail the health benefits of each ingredient. A “ladies only” area will promote the American Heart Associations’ Go Red campaign to educate women about heart disease.
Love You Day includes a variety of interactive experiences such as the Paper Plate Food Pyramid, rope jumping to observe heart rate increases, team building activities and self esteem exercises.
