Wellbody Blog

At Professor Wellbody's Academy of Health & Wellness, we understand there's only one thing harder than making healthy behavior changes: Sticking to them! We all need a little help from our friends, and that's the purpose of the Wellbody Blog, a friendly online gathering spot--a community well--where you can dip into health news; wellness tips; recipes; latest research about nutrition, exercise, sleep and hygiene; plus, real stories from virtual neighbors who are also trying to change their lives for the better. Start from wherever you are; share ideas, information, inspiration. At Pacific Science Center, we believe each of us can do something everyday to improve our health and well-being.

We were honored this morning by a visit from Ireland's Prime Minister, Enda Kenny, on a swing through America to talk trade and celebrate St. Patrick's Day with President Obama. Enda, who is currently president of the European Union, stopped by Seattle to visit the region's high-tech headliners--including Wellbody Academy's Germnasium--which has the only public-use SureWash training station in the world. SureWash uses a Microsoft Kinect camera and video gaming technology developed in Ireland to train medical personnel to correctly wash their hands.

Handshakes all around! But first, make sure you've washed your hands properly. Learn how by training on Wellbody Academy's SureWash stations.
