Did you know that the human heart beats more than 100,000 times each day? Or that your hydration can impact its performance? If you’ve ever been curious about how this body engine works, join us for our Future Well Kids ❤ Your Heart virtual field trip. Together with Discovery Education and hosted by our high school STEM interns, Kaliah and Allison, we recently opened our doors to invite kids and families on a journey to understand the structure and function of the heart. Kaliah and Allison met with Abbott scientists and doctors who explained how our hearts are similar to a house – with rooms (chambers), doors (valves), hallways (arteries), plumbing and even electricity. They also explored the importance of water and signs of dehydration, and also learned about the vital role that nutritious food choices and physical activity play in heart health. During the field trip, Allison and Abbott Pediatric Medical Director Dr. Karyn Wulf also met with special guest and three-time U.S. Olympian Lolo Jones – who shared some simple actions you can take to keep your heart healthy and strong.
