Honors Anatomy and Physiology Team Up With Nicklaus Children’s Hospital For Anatomy Project

The Honors Anatomy and Physiology course has paired up with Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and its Sports Therapy clinic to educate students on atypical anatomy. Through a series of visits, in-house lectures, and time spent in the PTS Falcon Forge, the honors students will create assistive equipment of their choice. To kick off the project, a young boy named Hayden came to visit the class; he has had atypical arm anatomy from birth. His mother took time to explain his deficiencies and showed the class all the wonderful things Hayden can do, thanks to modern technology and assistive devices. The second project-specific visit soon followed, where a sports therapist came to lecture on general atypical anatomy. She covered more well-known issues such as scoliosis, bow-legs, and issues stroke victims face. After these two visits, the students have been thoroughly motivated to create amazing devices to help those with atypical anatomy. More visits from the clinicians will follow, culminating in the project’s end in April. We look forward to seeing some wonderful, creative creations!
