Love Your Heart Day
The Louisiana Art & Science Museum (LASM) will host “Love Your Heart Day” in recognition of Heart Awareness Month on Saturday, February 25th, from 10 AM – 5 PM. LASM, in conjunction with the Illustrating Health exhibition in partnership with the VISTA (Visual Integration of Science Through Art) Center at Louisiana Tech University, is planning a family-focused, all-day event that will include heart health-related activities. “Love Your Heart Day” family-friendly activities are included in the price of general admission, and the event is sponsored by Happy's Running Club.
Visitors can join in on the heart health fun with a “DJ Dance Party” at 12:30 PM, provided by "Hip Hop Doc" Dr. Rani Whitfield, with a special guest appearance by Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome. The mayor will speak on the importance of heart health, as well as the Healthy City Initiative, which identifies and coordinates community efforts into a unifying commitment to better health.
