2019:  Anatomy Tour at the Mall,  The objective is to create the outreach activity at the mall, for the nursing students and PT students at an early stage of their training in school to practice with general population across Dallas. The students will engage with the general public in the mall to teach them what they learned in anatomy class while practicing their clinical skills. By giving this opportunity to students, they can take advantage to learn new skills early in their careers. Also, the public's engagement can serve as a motivation for them and it creates the conscience for taking better care

2018:  Human Anatomy Observational Outreach Week,  The human anatomy observational outreach week (anatomy week) is an initiative to target undergraduate woman and minority students with interest in learning advanced human anatomy at Texas Woman’s University Denton Campus. The purpose of the outreach activity is to enhance student learning of human anatomy through observation, and identification of human cadavers as well as encourage students to pursue Graduate or Allied Health Career. Our methods include the following: having students take a pre-test before going to the anatomy laboratory, then students will observe human cadavers and identify the structures related to the following anatomical systems: integumentary, muscular, skeletal and nervous systems. After the anatomy laboratory experience, students will answer a post-test with the purpose of quantifying learning parameters. Finally, to measure the success of the activity, we will ask students to respond to a survey related to the discussed topics during the activity. We hypothesize that the outreach will help them understand the different anatomical systems in a human body in a real setting to obtain a better grade at post-test. Our future goals are to establish the Anatomy Week two times during a scholar year and to encourage and inspire students to continue further graduate studies.
