YSP and St. Louis Science Center Offer 5th Installment of Family Med School Basics
Back by popular demand, YSP and the St. Louis Science Center have partnered once again to present Family Med School Basics. In its fifth year, Family Med School Basics offers 4 hands-on medical training sessions for children, 5th grade and older and their families. Participants learn about human anatomy and physiology as well as disease through demonstrations provided by the YSP Anatomy teaching team. To coincide with the Body World and the Brain exhibit currently featured at the Science Center our first session focused on the brain and nervous system. YSP volunteers consisting of graduate/medical students, postdocs, and undergraduate students presented demonstrations to a full capacity group on Brain Anatomy, Visual Distortion, Proprioception, and Tactile Sensation. Additional sessions of Family Med School Basics will be held at the Science Center from 1:30-3:30 pm on September 24th (heart and cardiovascular system), October 29th (lungs and respiratory system), and November 19th (digestive system).
