Sci-Port Discovery Center is providing free admission on Thursday, June 23, 2022 from 5pm until 7pm. Those who attend will have access to Sci-Port’s GamePort exhibit and Gallery of Intrigue.
Participants will also be able to learn about the All of Us Research Program and enter a contest to win free IMAX documentary tickets for a year.
The All of Us Research program helps researchers make discoveries that may lead to better health treatments. By studying things like our genetic makeup, lifestyle, and environment, the All of Us Research Program aims to find more tailored ways to keep us healthy.
When we go to the doctor, we want care based on our unique situation. Unfortunately, health research has lacked diverse data that represents all of us. The way we get to a future where health care is tailored to our needs is by making sure that diverse communities like Shreveport are included in health research. Only then can we look for answers to some of the biggest health questions that impact us, like heart disease and maternal death rates.

You will also be able to enjoy delicious food from RNL Authentic’s Food Truck, which will also be parked outside the event.
