About this Group
Anatomy Academy is a student-run organization with a commitment to improve the health education of children living in the Westwood Salvation Army housing facility and in other local underserved communities. The primary focus of Anatomy Academy is to establish visits to teach youth at the Westwood Salvation Army housing facility and to create other opportunities for medical students to interact with other school-aged children with the purpose of providing relatable, fun and medically-related educational experiences for children. We hope to promote an understanding of health and interest in science and medicine among children from various backgrounds. Members of the group collaborate with each other and faculty to engineer relevant, interesting and interactive lessons for children of varying ages.
