After a year of research, experimentation and box building, the Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center is ready to announce the release of Heart In A Box as of May 15. 

Geoff Robinson, the center’s education director, said that he is currently putting the finishing touches on lesson details. 

“I’ve seen the potential of this project from the beginning. The vision for a project like this comes easy,” Robinson said.
