Healthyville Mini Exhibit
January 05, 2017 - April 23, 2017
Created by Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Connecticut, Healthyville® is a small, portable exhibit promoting healthy choice. Shop at the Good Food Market, use a pulse meter, balance food choices with physical activity, practice brushing and flossing a big mouth and more.
Celebrate a new year of making healthy choices on Family Day @ MOCA! Join us on January 21 from 1-4pm in exploring MOCA's newest exhibit for kids and decorating the museum in preparation for our Lunar New Year Celebration on February 11.
Healthyville® was created by Stepping Stones Museum for Children and is an extension of the museum's Healthy Children, Healthy Communities® initiative. Healthyville® and accompanying community programming on healthy lifestyles are brought to you by Charles B. Wang Community Health Center, Ong Family Foundation, The YMCA, and the Museum of Chinese in America.
