Videos from the 2016 Service of Gratitude, an annual ceremony expressing appreciation to donors to McMaster University’s Anatomy Department and the donors’ families, have been produced by the Education program in Anatomy.
The videos by the Education Program in Anatomy feature talks by Rev. Allison Barrett, program director Bruce Wainman, program head of prosection Andrew Palombella, and students of the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, the Midwifery Education Program, and the Bachelor of Health Sciences Program.
“Behind every specimen, there’s a story unknown to us,” said Nicole Jedrzejko, a second-year medical student.
"The wonder of navigating their brains and hearts is only matched by the immediate understanding that we will never navigate their minds and souls. ”
Both a condensed and full version of the moving ceremony held May 12, 2016 may be watched online.
