"Hands-on" field trip-human patient simulators and willed bodies
"Coby" has died more than 50 times in the past two years. He died one more time for biomedical students from H.S.A. Dallas on May 5th. "Coby" is a human patient simulator at UTSouthwestern Medical Center. He responds to medication, blinks his eyes, raises his chest, and has a pulse. Practicing with "Coby" helped our students not only understand what they learn in BioMedical class, but they also got the opportunity to practice their skills. Our students also visited the Willed Body Lab, and they learned valuable knowledge and techniques by touch and observing real body parts from different donors. This field trip was a great experience!
Opportunity for community service hours: Dallas Public Library
The Audelia Road branch of the Dallas Public Library always has an ongoing need for volunteers to help out after school and weekends. Flexible schedules; duties both inside and outside! During summer and throughout next school year. Volunteers can start as early as next week. This could be useful to seniors who are close to their goals!

Overall, the trip to UT-Southwestern was a joyous and learning experience for the students at Harmony Science Academy of Dallas!
