Lincoln Way East students observe autopsy via live stream. The Herald News. July 18, 2017

What schools are saying

“We can not thank you enough for providing this incredible experience for the students of John Hersey High School!  The students were absolutely enthralled for the entire presentation and are so very fortunate to have had this opportunity. This allowed the students to apply the knowledge they have been learning in class with a real life scenario.  While the cadaver field trip we took in the fall was an excellent extension of our class, this took learning to an entirely new level!  I love that we were able to explore the case study in preparation of the viewing so that students felt like actual pathologists/investigators trying to make a diagnosis and solve a case.” -Kelley Pataky, Science Teacher, Arlington Heights

“…The experience was great. It was great to be able to watch a procedure such as a autopsy and then have commentary from the doctor that actually performed the procedure….It was also great how the doctor involved us by asking us questions and then also by answering all of the questions we had…. – Nina P, student

“I also thought it was cool when he talked about the pacemaker and the steps that they had to take to make sure that they wouldn’t be shocked. There is definitely a lot of small things they have to think about when performing something so serious!” -Jamie B., student

“Our class was small at the time, so there was a great opportunity to talk with the medical examiner and ask personalized questions….[I]t was the first time I was exposed to a situation like the one we saw on screen, and it was a learning experience in and of itself.” -Jiaqi C., student
