Have you ever wanted to walk through a heart? Weird question right? We'll in February you'll have the chance to do so.

On February19th, Health Quest will be holding the MEGA Heart exhibit at the Poughkeepsie Galleria. To promote Heart Month and heart healthy habits, the team at Vassar Brothers Medical Center and The Heart Center will bring this hands on informative MEGA heart to center court. The MEGA Heart stretches 26 feet long, 13 feet tall and 15 feet wide. It's no wonder they call it MEGA.


Dr. Daniel O’Dea,  the vice president of cardiovascular services at Health Quest says "Our heart is a fascinating organ. We can feel it pumping away, but most don’t really comprehend what the heart does. The MEGA heart offers an up-close, exciting window inside the body, so we can learn how to best take care of ourselves.” If you visit the exhibit you'll enter through the largest vein that feeds the heart and exit through the aorta, all the while learning about how the heart functions. While you're there you may also enjoy massage chairs and free CPR courses. There will also be nutrisonist and phramacists on hand to discuss nutrition and check perscriptions.

MEGA Heart Exhibit takes place Saturday, February 19th from 11am to 6pm at Center Court in the Poughkeepsie Galleria. More details can be found on their Facebook page.
