Herkimer County Community 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 26. 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. Anatomy & Physiology students enrolled in Herkimer’s Physical Therapist Assistant and Science programs 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 and Rebecca Ward, Assistant Professor of Biology. The trip was sponsored by HCCC’s Student Activities and Science Departments.
