About 45 second and third-grade students from Grant Elementary School in Marshfield got a lesson on the circulatory system Wednesday. It was all part of an outreach program by the Milwaukee-based Children's Health Education Center.
The Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Family aims to teach kids about making healthy choices for their lives.
"I learned that if you eat a lot of fat," said eight-year-old Alex Shulman, "your veins can get clogged up, and no blood can go through them."
"We learned how to keep your body healthy," said nine-year-old Emily Wolfe, "to like, exercise and eat food and what you should do."
The interactive program on the body's circulatory system will run in Marshfield for the rest of the week. The Children's Health Education Center puts on programs for about 75,000 children a year.
