A press conference at the Knock Knock Children's Museum, Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019 announced a year-long partnership between the museum, the mayor's 'HealthyBR' health initiative, LSU's Pennington Biomedical Research Center and other community organizations, designed to provide health-themed programming for youngsters at the museum throughout 2019. Rainy weather turned the mayor's planned 'Move with Mayor Broome' outdoor walk into an indoor exploration of the games and exercise stations at the museum on Saturday. Area schools can compete for an opportunity to visit KKCM by embodying each month's #LoveBatonRouge theme in their classrooms. Each selected school will receive 50 free passes to attend a #LoveBatonRouge on a Saturday at KKCM. Applications are available now through February 15 on the HealthyBR website: http://www.healthybr.com/be-active/family-kids/. In addition, HealthyBR and Pennington Biomedical's Behavior Technology Laboratory will host 'Sisu & You' on the fourth Thursday of each month, through May. This 50-minute workshop embraces the power of Sisu (the Finnish term for resilience), teaching participants to appreciate and care for their bodies. Registration is required for the program, which repeats monthly. To register, visit www.healthybr.com/events/SISU.
