Hey gang!  Travis back with some Tampa Bay entertainment that everyone should be attending...at least that's what my mom told me when I was young.  It all happens this Friday, April 3 at MOSI in North Tampa from 10am to 2pm.  

 

Here are the details about the pearly white event - 

 

BODY WORLDS & The Story of the Heart and Pepin Heart Hospital are teaming up with students from Hillsborough Community College’s (HCC) Dental Program for “Heart Your Smile” to raise awareness of oral health and maintaining a heart free from endocarditis (presently known as infective endocarditis).

 

Here's how Body Worlds is involved - BODY WORLDS features a comprehensive exhibit gallery of plastinated human heart specimens including a heart specimen with an artificial valve. Endocarditis can deform the heart valves so much that they no longer open sufficiently or close properly. In severe cases, the affected valves have to be replaced with artificial ones.

 

Dr. Charles Lambert, medical director, of Pepin Heart Hospital will be present to answer questions on infective endocarditis. In addition, students from the HCC Dental Program will be on-site at MOSI to demonstrate and provide information on the proper way to brush and floss daily.

 

And there you have it.  To get more details, head over to www.MOSI.org and take a look.
