Big news! HSAA has donated $250,000 to the TELUS World of Science – Edmonton to create a permanent Healthcare in Action gallery as part of the new Health Zone opening in February 2022.
Guests will be at the centre of their own health story through hands-on experiences and experiments. This gallery will explore the different elements that influence our health from our biology to our choices, and the way that health care supports you.
“HSAA is proud to be a part of the new Healthcare in Action gallery at TELUS World of Science – Edmonton. Our members are health-care experts who are there every day when people need care. We are connected to our patients in our desire to ensure a healthy future for all. The Health Zone is a place for all ages to come and learn about their health, and to hopefully inspire a new generation to dedicate their lives to protecting and improving the health of others in their communities.”
– Leanne Alfaro, Vice-President, HSAA
Visitors will be reminded about the importance of health-care professionals. They can investigate their bodies using real sciences tools and learn about the work that pharmacists, paramedics, laboratory technicians, diagnostic professionals and others do to create healthy communities.
“The partnership between HSAA and the science centre will encourage Albertans of every age to learn more about the science behind their health through Healthcare in Action in the Health Zone. We are very thankful to HSAA for their investment into the limitless potential of our children and future generations to come.”
– Alan Nursall, President & CEO at TELUS World of Sciences – Edmonton
