Witte Museum

Log Number: ARPML-250822-OMLS-22

The Witte Museum in San Antonio, Texas, will strengthen community engagement in its H-E-B Body Adventure, an innovative model of collaborative museum-civic engagement that provides essential data to improve community health. The exhibition answers a community-wide call for solutions to a childhood obesity epidemic, using digital technologies to deliver health education messages playfully and powerfully in a supportive, nonjudgmental environment. The museum will invigorate the exhibition experience by redesigning and upgrading the You Are What You Drink and South Texas Trailblaze components and adding a Virtual Tag element focused on heart health and physical activity. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and community health needs defined by San Antonio’s Metropolitan Health District, the museum will integrate vaccine awareness into the exhibition content.
