Attendees are invited to enroll as research participants where they learn about the research process and the quality of their own diet and body composition. Participants can contribute their anonymous health information to a population database that researchers can use to the scientific relationships among diet, body composition, genetics, and chronic disease. Communities are invited to use the data to develop programs and write grants that support healthy living in the community. Schools can use the data to conduct scientific inquiry lessons with their students, thereby allowing students to examine information like their own energy drink consumption use real, but completely anonymous, data.

Let's Get Healthy! (originally titled Nutrition World) was created by OCTRI Community & Practice Research (CPR) program team member Jackie Shannon and others. The exhibit debuted at OMSI in summer 2007.
