Healthcare Career Club Visits the Buffalo Museum of Science

by cnewman

On Saturday, October 12, thirty-seven Mount Mercy Academy students in the Healthcare Career Club visited the Buffalo Museum of Science to see the Body Worlds Vital Exhibition. The exhibit, created by Dr. Gunther von Hagens, featured real, donated human specimens - allowing students to explore the internal world of anatomy and physiology on a life-size scale. Specifically, the exhibit focused on how certain lifestyle choices can either positively or negatively influence human health. The goal of the visit was to introduce students interested in the health care field to the wonders of the human body and the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices. Students could also explore other museum exhibits such as Explore YOU! , Nano, and In Motion.

The Healthcare Career Club is a component of Mount Mercy's Academy of Science and Healthcare - a unique career internship program for students to gain first-hand knowledge of many different careers. MMA has teamed up with Mercy Hospital to create a vibrant learning experience for our students.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
