Palomar Health partners with children’s museum in exhibit
Palomar Health has partnered with San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum to present the Healthcare Heroes exhibit.
The interactive exhibit features an experience that celebrates Palomar Health’s healthcare workers and their efforts to keep the community safe during the pandemic while educating children on the world of healthcare and medicine.
Healthcare Heroes offers the opportunity for children to step into the world of medicine and learn how to live a happy and healthy life. The exhibit feature an ambulance, specialist rooms, an administrative desk where children can learn life skills, interactive challenges, arts and crafts, onsite activities and more.
“We want to spark the interest of our youngest generation to foster a stronger appreciation for our healthcare workforce, demystify any fears around healthcare visits, and discover the many rewarding careers that exist within the healthcare industry,” said Kristin Gaspar, president and CEO of Palomar Health Foundation.
The Healthcare Heroes exhibit presents children and parents a better understanding of the importance of a healthy lifestyle through the interactive displays with medical tools, weekly onsite educational programming, online videos, special speaker events, and more. It will be available through November, and later will find a permanent place in the pediatric ward at Palomar Health.
