Memorial Medical Center Foundation | Anatomical Models
The Memorial Medical Center Foundation continues to support academic excellence at UIS. This fall the Foundation followed up an earlier grant to the Biology Department for anatomical models with a second grant. Students in anatomy and physiology labs are using the additional torsos, legs, arms and other 3-D models both for learning and testing. "The additional models are especially helpful because we have added so many exercise science students to the A & P classes," said UIS Biology Instructor David Holland, who co-wrote the grant proposal with Dr. Tracy Schatteman. The models will also be used in Dr. Schatteman's upper-level A & P course for pre-med students.

Academic Excellence: Because learning empowers the future.
