The Anatomy Cadaver class was so much more than just getting the chance to sit next to a cadaver! If you think you know everything there is to know about the layers of the skin, its purpose, and the role it takes in the physiology of the body - you don't. Jonathan's excitement for anatomy is contagious. I am really grateful to have been apart of the class.
