Olympus announces its sponsorship of an exhibit as part of the LVHN My Body Exhibit Gallery inside the DaVinci Science Center at PPL Pavilion
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. (April 25, 2022) — Olympus Corporation of the Americas announced today its sponsorship of an exhibit inside the DaVinci Science Center at PPL Pavilion slated to open in 2024 in Center City Allentown, Pa. The company's 10-year commitment to this new educational center in the Lehigh Valley will support an exhibit exploring how Olympus endoscopy products work to diagnose and treat diseases, such as colorectal and lung cancer.
This exhibit will be part of the larger Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) My Body Exhibit Gallery, an exhibit that will help visitors celebrate the human body, explore how it works and consider how to keep it healthy. The LVHN My Body Exhibit Gallery will feature a larger-than-life immersive human body experience that explains how the body works and how to keep it healthy. The gallery contains multiple components, and the Olympus interactive portion will show visitors how an endoscope travels through the body and helps detect and diagnose different diseases.
In addition to the exhibit, Olympus plans to sponsor TEAM Learning Center programming in a future phase of the DaVinci Science Center at PPL Pavilion.
