Broken Hearts

Submitted by anna.palmer on Tue, 03/11/2014 - 14:41

This week our WSU anatomy/physiology students put their knowledge to the test.  They were tasked to open and identify all of the chambers and valves of a pig heart.  They also located the major vessels and traced the path of blood from body to lungs and back to the heart again.  It was a great opportunity to experience the view of a
cardiologist.

Tito Momen speaks at ALC

"Having problems...this is living. Don't let your problems become your prison," said Tito Momen as he spoke to ALC's Medical Forensics students this morning. We were very fortunate to have Mr. Momen as a guest today. This man was falsely imprisoned for 15 years and 15 days in the worst prison of Egypt. He taught about the justice system of Egypt so we could compare it to America's justice system. He also talked about how to get through hard times. What a great experience!
