L-W West Students Get Unique Anatomy Lesson at Cadaver Lab
Monday, April 13, 2015

A group of Lincoln-Way West junior and senior students received a unique lesson in human anatomy during an optional field trip to a cadaver lab at the National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) in Lombard last week.

More than 30 students in Mrs. Neubergs junior and senior Human Anatomy and Physiology class participated, taking advantage of the opportunity to hold organs like the brain and intestines.

This field trip gave students the opportunity to see and touch the anatomy structures they have been learning about in class, said Neuberg. This experience brings a whole new dimension to what students are learning in the text book, giving them a broader picture of the intricacies of the human body.

Students heard about the graduate and doctoral degrees offered at NUHS. The presenter used a cadaver to show students the human body from the tissue level to the organs.

Students who attended the field trip include Kristen Hickey, Joel Hollingsworth, James Lucia, Craig Majcher, Anthony Marotta, Stephanie McDonald, Emily Wyskiel, Joseph Davis, Andrew Hogeveen, Samuele Porto, Max Rickerson, Jacob Sytsma, Jillian Waller, Thomas Wegrzyn, Alexander Alvardo, Meredith Buldak, Michaela Bulthuis, Divinity Burgos, Erin dolan, Madison Edwards, Caroline Floyd, Madeleine Forberg, Casey Fuerst, Sabrina Gerencher, Sara OHare, Audrey Pearson, Carly Souder, Kaitlyln Souder Bridget Soukup, Delayne Weston, Megan Weygandt, Tessa Wheeler, Brandon Voss, and Ray Muro Barrios.
