Herkimer College Students Visit Newest BODY WORLDS Exhibit.
Herkimer College students and faculty visited Gunther von Hagen’s BODY WORLDS: Pulse at Discovery Times Square, New York for the exhibit’s opening on April 4. The exhibit is the newest in the renowned BODY WORLDS series, which has presented the human body in groundbreaking ways for discovery to more than 36 million people around the world during its 18 year tenure. Students enrolled in Herkimer’s Physical Therapist Assistant and Allied Health and Science programs, as well as several members of the Science Club, were able to view real human bodies preserved with plastination technology to study the anatomy of the human body in its healthy and diseased state. Faculty chaperones in attendance included Dr. Catherine Delorme, PT, DPT; Dr. Karen Jones PT, DPT; Scott Miller, PTA mentor; Rebecca Ward, Assistant Professor of Biology and Dr. Nicole McDaniels, Assistant Professor of Science. The trip was sponsored by Herkimer College's Center for Student Leadership & Involvement and the Science Departments.
