Crouse in the Classroom: Human Anatomy 101

01/25/12

 

Soule Rd Dr. B Visit 1-24-12The entire sixth-grade glass at Soule Road Elementary School in Liverpool started their week by meeting Crouse Hospital surgeon Dennis Brown, MD, who came with items that immediately sparked the students' interest: actual organ samples. They were fascinated with learning more about the human body, and posed all sorts of questions about various organs of the body. In addition, the students asked Dr. Brown about his career and the different types of surgeries that can be performed.

 

One organ sample shown to the students was a lung diseased from smoking. Looking at the lung, one student asked why it looked as though it had mold on it, pointing to small holes in the organ. "That's the alveoli," responded Dr. Brown, "So you know what that is?" The students each responded yes, pleasing their science teacher since they just had been tested on the respiratory system.

 
Dr. Brown's presentation was part of the school's science curriculum and helped fulfill Crouse Hospital's mission of promoting community health. And in this case, recruiting the next generation of healthcare providers.
