Come and learn about what can go
wrong with the human body. Explore
what diseases such as heart attacks,
strokes and cancer actually look like
in a human body by looking at real
human pathological specimens in the
Vernon-Roberts Anatomy and Pathology
Museum. Students will gain a great
insight into the causes and complications
of such diseases and the areas of
anatomy, pathology and physiology.
This session will also give students the
opportunity to talk with some of our
