On Friday, November 10th, 18  students in Mrs. Ogilvie’s Anatomy class and Mrs. Crawford’s Sports Med class went on a field trip to the cadaver lab at JMU. The students were able to examine human cadavers with the help of JMU staff.  The students were able to hold a human brain in their hands and observe the effects of heart disease on the size of a human heart. The students also toured the Rec Center and ate a delicious lunch at the JMU cafeteria.
