Smoking Effects Experiment

The Medical Forensics Classes were able to learn how the habit of smoking can do serious damage to your lungs. The students were each given a water bottle and some cotton balls, along with a cigarette.

After the cigarette had emitted its contents into the water bottle, the students were able to see all of the tobacco residues the white cotton balls had on them in just a short amount of time.  It was shocking to most of the students how much harm tobacco can do to a person's lungs.

Dangers of Drugs

The Medical Forensics, Anatomy and Physiology, and the Psychology/Human Development classes were all privileged to hear from Troy Hansen.  Troy Hansen comes each year to speak to the ALC students about his first-hand story of the dangers of drugs. How they can really affect the course of your life.

He did a Fantastic job!  It really made the kids stop and think about drugs and their effect. 

Thank, you Troy for taking time out of your schedule to teach these students the effects drugs can have on your life.

 Ms. Grants Anatomy and Physiology classes all look forward to the day they get to.......dissect hearts.

It is a job that is NOT for those who have feeble hearts or queasy stomachs. All of the students in the class did a great job and were all very engaged in the process of dissecting and were amazed at the intricate details that the heart itself has to it. There were so many little vessels and veins that have a specific function in order for a heart to work.

The UVU Policy Academy visited The ALC Criminal Justice Classes this past week. 

Patrice Bolen and her sidekick, Colin D. Cops, came to explain to the students what is required to take these classes and also what is expected from the students if this is a pathway they would like to take.

She talked to the students about the academy and what the process would be. 

We appreciate these special guest speakers that take time to come and educate our students.

Thank you, Patrice and Colin.

ALC's Advanced Anatomy and Physiology Class and the Medical Forensics Class traveled to SLC to tour the Cadaver Lab at the University of Utah last Friday. They braved the storm, with the help of our wonderful bus driver, Carl. It was well worth braving the storm!!!

Students were able to handle different organs and see how medical students and anatomists work on cadavers.  It was very interesting and a great educational opportunity for the students.
