WesternU is partnering with Inter Valley Health Plan, Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, and Fairplex to once again bring “Our Body: The Universe Within” to the Los Angeles County Fair Sept. 2-25, 2016.

“Our Body” is an educational exhibit consisting of actual human bodies, specimens and organs. Appropriate for all ages, the exhibit literally goes under the skin to reveal the mysteries of human anatomy. Visitors to the exhibition will journey through galleries relative to each system of the body in an effort to educate, enlighten, and spark interest and understanding of the complex universe within each of us. “Our Body” is composed of more than 200 specimens that have been preserved using a method known as polymer impregnation.

WesternU, IVHP and PVHMC, which previously partnered on “Our Body” in 2012, have added their own theme to the exhibit, focusing on the question “Our Body Does What?” Interesting factoids about human bodies and biological processes will be sprinkled throughout the exhibit, along with graphic elements and videos created by the partners.

A separate $5 fee (ages 5 and under are free) will be charged to enter the “Our Body” exhibit. Proceeds go toward Fairplex youth education programs.
