MESA “Align Your Spine” Dissection Lab

The “Align Your Spine” MESA Dissection Lab was held on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at the SEMO AHEC office in Poplar Bluff. Students explored the spine and its role in posture and protection of our central nervous system through lecture and dissection of a mink and a cow spinal cord. Students also participated in an activity where they learned to feel the different landmarks on each other’s backs.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Bryna Peplinski, KCUMB medical student, who assisted with the dissection set up and answered students’ questions during the dissections.
