Mankato Clinic providers are playing at the Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota’s A Healthy Me exhibit in August. Media are welcome.


  • Galen Hilgendorf, PA-C, is scheduled 9-11 a.m., Friday, August 16. Hilgendorf is a physican assistant in family medicine at Mankato Clinic’s Daniels Health Center in St. Peter.
  • Erin Gonzalez, RD, LD, is scheduled 9-11 a.m. Wednesday, August 28. Gonzalez is a registered and licensed dietitian in the Mankato Clinic Diabetes and Nutrition Education Center.

Children are invited to come and play, talk, laugh and learn with our providers. A Healthy Me is a hands-on exhibit which includes a doctor’s office, operation game, a giant sneezing nose, and giant teeth to brush. Young visitors can wear white coats and perform surgery, do check-ups on dolls and view x-rays. Families can also learn more about well-being, emotions and healthy choices.


A Healthy Me exhibit ends September 30.
