“At Arkansas Blue Cross, we know it is important to begin educating kids on good
health habits early,” said Karen Raley, vice president of Communications. “Dance and Discover is an opportunity for our members to engage their children in learning more about
how their bodies work and how to keep them functioning properly. Helping families stay
healthy is part of our mission and this event is a fun, interactive way to learn about how
building healthy habits into your lifestyle helps keep you ‘amazing.’”
“Health science is an important component to the Museum, as it is one of our permanent
galleries,” said Nan Selz, executive director for the Museum of Discovery. “We invite
visitors to discover how the human body works and how choices for a healthy, active
lifestyle keep their bodies running better,” she added.
Members simply show their health plan ID card (Arkansas Blue Cross, Health Advantage or
BlueAdvantage) at the door of the Museum of Discovery, sign in and enjoy free admission
to the Museum on June 9. A health plan ID card from Arkansas Blue Cross, Health
