NEW BRITAIN — The Petit Family Foundation has announced that it has awarded a $14,000 grant to New Britain High School’s Academy for Health Professions.

The grant will help fund the “MEGA Body” inflatable exhibit at its Health and Promotion and Wellness Fair to be held April 9 at the high school.

The MEGA Body exhibit is a larger-than-life, walk-through model of the entire human body. Last year, a grant from the foundation funded the “MEGA Brain” and “MEGA Heart” exhibits.

The Petit Family Foundation was founded to honor Dr. William Petit’s wife and two young daughters, who were killed in a home invasion in 2007.
