You don’t often get a chance to look inside a set of human lungs, but a traveling exhibit aimed at helping in the fight against lung cancer is coming to Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth to do just that.
Called The LungXperience, the exhibit will be located at Gate 5 at the track from 3:30 to 8 p.m. on Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday.
The LungXperience, a traveling, augmented reality exhibit presented by AstraZeneca, offers an educational opportunity to learn more about lung cancer and the scientific advances being made to treat it.
LungXperience features 14-foot-tall, 9-foot-wide inflatable lungs that visitors can walk through carrying smart devices activating a series of modules, according to a statement. The modules explain the stages of lung cancer, new treatments fighting it, and what advances may lie ahead.
AstraZeneca, an English-Swedish pharmaceutical company with a facility in Coppell, points out that Texas ranks 10th in the nation for the number of new lung cancer diagnoses each year, with a rate of 56.4 per 100,000 people.
