Clinical Case Studies: An Integrative Approach to Teaching Human Anatomy to Undergraduate Students

The thigh bone is connected to the knee bone? Most undergraduate students probably wish studying human anatomy was that easy!

the human body.

Submit a nomination for one of the CCE’s year-end awards! Recipients will be recognized at the Community Engagement Recognition Night on Wednesday, April 24th.

The Wellness Resource Center is seeking participants in a new campaign that promotes holistic well-being as a process that is different for everyone! Along with posters hanging around campus, there will be an online component of the campaign featuring photos of CC community members holding the posters and descriptions of how they engage with well-being and self-care. The campaign builds on the holistic model of wellness to highlight five practices that help facilitate well-being: engage, relate, care, reflect, and rest. Participation takes about five minutes and involves having your photo taken (we’ll come to you) and submitting a 2-3 sentence blurb about how you engage with well-being. Contact cpalmer@coloradocollege.edu if you’re interested!

Dr. Melina Abdullah will be the first speaker in the Africana Intellectual Project’s Social Justice series which is a component of the Black Art(s): Radical Potentialities Conversations. With a PhD in Political Science from the University of Southern California, Dr. Abdullah is a recognized expert on race, gender, class, and social movements, and she is among the original group of organizers that convened to form Black Lives Matter.

The ambition of the Social Justice series is to broaden the traditional definition of “art,” and to use that expanded territory to examine the potential for various practices to serve as components of a project of radical political, social, and cultural change and exchange. Prof Abdullah is an ideal interlocutor for this work in that we will be in a position to consider protest as a radical “art” practice.

The event will be held at 7:30pm on Monday, April 8 in the Celeste Theatre. The event is free and open to the public.
