On July 21, 2017, I had the opportunity to enter a Gross Anatomy Lab for the fourth time, while others have barely entered for the first time. I had the opportunity to share some of the knowledge with my peers from what I have learned from the times I have visited the Gross Anatomy Lab. In the lab we touched cadavers and identified the different parts of the heart, but also saw how our body is built from the inside. I also learned why some of the peers felt weird on feeling the human beings, they said “it feels like we are disrespecting them, even though they were donated to educate us to have healers in our world. it feels weird to feel someone that has gone through many experiences that we can not even think of”, that automatically changed my mindset of being in the lab with a lot of cadavers. We even saw how one of the cadavers have passed away from cancer and it made me think that I need to take care of myself more to not end of in a situation between life and death. I am glad we have people in themis world who are dedicated to learn about human bodies and learn how to heal us because personally I am not capable of that. So shoutout to all those healers in the world who are making a difference for us to continue to live a long healthy life.
always happy, Johanna Osuna
