LGBT Health Fair Amid Plastinated Human Bodies

This Sunday, take proactive steps to guard your health while you look deep within the human instrument. We mean that literally -- there's going to be a health fair at the St. Louis Science Center, and included in your admission ticket is the Body Worlds and the Brain exhibit.

From noon to four on the 25th, $7.50 and a coupon from the September issue of The Vital VOICE gets you in to Vital Health, the LGBT Health Fair, which is in the EXPLORADOME lobby. (Without the coupon it's a cool $20, so go find one for sure.)

Lots of groups will be on hand providing information, testing and resources for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender health: Planned Parenthood will have safer sex kits, SAGE is offering help quitting smoking, and St. Louis Effort for AIDS will be conducting STD tests. Check out fitness and nutrition demos and samples as well.

Then after you've learned how to keep your body in tip-top shape, go inspect bodies from the inside at Gunther von Hagen's controversial, creepy and incredibly fascinating exhibit of plastinated human bodies, with an emphasis on brains.
