I am a teacher whose third grade class came to the center on a field trip. The professionalism and and enthusiasim of the employees at the Poe Health center is unparelleled. They do a fantastic job of engaging students and tailoring their programs to meet specific classroom needs. We are lucky to have this in our community!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

classroom programs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

add more hands on activities for childern involved in the program.

This is a great facility staffed with engaging educators. My son's third grade class had a great time in their sessions - Bones & Joints, The Brain, and Healthy Foods. The subject matter was covered in their classroom and reinforced with this field trip. I hope every child in Wake County has an opportunity to explore the Poe center - interactive learning in a fun environment.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing my son practicing what he learned in his sessions.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

include more hands-on exhibits.

The Parent Resource Center at Wilson Families in Action contracted The Poe Center to offer 2 presentations at a recent community-wide event that we sponsored. The adult program, "Drugs Uncovered: What Parents Need to Know" offered an excellent opportunity for parents to be educated on what their kids face each and every day. This program included a "mock bedroom" which our participants stated was "eye-opening" and "very educational". The Center also presented "For the Health of It" for our middle-schoolers who attended the event. The kids learned about how drugs and alcohol effects a young person's body and brain. The presenters were wonderful and did a great job! Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the Poe Center's offerings. NC is fortunate to have The Poe Center and it's offerings!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Parent education and enlightenment.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase their visibility to North Carolinians

My children have all benefitted from programming at the Poe Health Center. Without a doubt, the field trip to the Poe Center is always anticipated and results in lots of suggestions for mom and dad! I highly recommend the Poe Center for school groups, clubs, or just a family affair.

My children have all grown in their knowledge about health because of their visits to the Poe Center.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

let more people know about it!
