KCON Night at the Museum with Bodies Revealed
Date and TimeThursday, December 5, 2019
6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
- Grand Rapids Public Museum - 272 Pearl Street NW, Grand Rapids MI 49504
Join us Thursday, December 5, 2019, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Grand Rapids Public Museum, to see graduate nursing students from Grand Valley State University's Kirkhof College of Nursing (KCON) present posters in conjunction with Bodies Revealed.
The Bodies Revealed exhibition, returning to Grand Rapids after nearly a decade, features real, whole and partial body specimens that have been preserved through an innovative process, giving visitors the opportunity to view the complexity of their own organs and systems like never before.
KCON students will present posters as part of their pathophysiology course and will feature examples of a human disease process emphasizing the current understanding of its pathophysiology. Pathophysiology is the science that connects diseases ("patho") of different parts of the human body with the effects of that disease on how the body functions ("physiology"). How a disease affects the structure of the body and the resulting abnormal function will lead to the symptoms and other exam findings that allow a health care professional to diagnose and treat the disease.
