Dynamic Teaching Theaters

A visit to Byrnes Health Education is an exciting and educational multimedia experience! Innovative programs are led by exceptionally qualified health educators and are enhanced by amazing, interactive exhibits. All programs and exhibits meet many National and State Education Standards and have been designed in conjunction with local school representatives to enhance classroom curriculum.

Health education programs are taught in six high-tech teaching theaters located in York, PA. Each theater highlights an important area of health and is named for the topic of emphasis: Substance Abuse Prevention, General Health, Nutrition & Fitness, Human Development, Body Shop for Early Learners, and the Social Emotional theater.

Visitors come from across Central PA and Northern MD to participate in one of over 40 program offerings on topics such as nutrition, mental health awareness, stress reduction, substance abuse prevention, dental health, puberty, the five senses, character education, anatomy, safety, and fitness, just to name a few!


To reach additional students and to further the message of healthy lifestyles, we provide outreach programs that are delivered directly in school classrooms and organizations. Onsite classes (Outreach) include a learning session on a particular health topic and hands-on activities.


For those schools and organizations that are located out of our service area, we offer Webcasting as an option to access health curriculum. Live Webcasting allows us to “visit” any classroom, no matter where it is located. With Webcasting, we are able to present to students in one of our teaching theaters in real time, allowing students to interact with our educator while learning about important health subjects. This unique education experience includes props, activities and more to make it a program students will not only never forget, but also learn from!
