Every August the Academic Health Center reaches out to more than 1.6 million visitors at the Minnesota State Fair.
As part of the University of Minnesota’s exhibit in the Crossroads Building, our exhibit provides Minnesotans with a unique opportunity to learn about the Academic Health Center’s contributions to the state and world.
Through the wonders of telemedicine, fairgoers participate in dermatology screenings to assess moles, spots, and suspicious skin lesions.
Dynamic stage presentations showcase a wide range of health topics—from baby animals to bioethics to exercises that help with dementia.
Interactive exhibits such as minimally invasive surgery and “goo”-making give adults and children insight into our drive for discoveries that change the world.
Staff answer questions, share research results, and pique interest in health-care careers.
