EWU Partners with Mobius

Published: July 01, 2016

CHENEY, Washington - Eastern Washington University and its College of Health Science and Public Health (CHSPH) is a title sponsor of "Bodies Human - Anatomy in Motion", a special exhibit featured in the new Mobius Science Center location at 331 N. Post St. in downtown Spokane.

EWU President Mary Cullinan joined local civic leaders to celebrate the center's grand opening on July 1.

The fascinating Bodies Human display will give the public a once-in-a-lifetime chance to the inner workings of real human bodies through authentic, preserved human body specimens. The display includes six bodies, more than 100 individual organs and transparent body slices that have been preserved through a process that replaces bodily fluids with reactive plastics. Visitors will better understand how their own body functions by getting a personal look our skeletal, muscular, respiratory and circulatory systems.

Bodies Human will be on display at Mobius through Dec. 31, and as a title sponsor EWU will host educational programming the first Saturday of each month at the center. Programs will be designed to expose young people to all of Eastern's in-demand health science offerings.

"This is an excellent opportunity for the college to support such a fun and educational community event," says Laureen O'Hanlon, dean of CHSPH at Eastern. "We also value this partnership with Möbius as we share a common vision of engaging children in learning about health sciences."

The Area Health Education Center (AHEC), which is managed by EWU, will coordindate many of the Saturday programs. AHEC strives to encourage youth to pursue health professions in rural and underserved communities. Eastern will also use the workshops to promote it's programs in Dental Hygiene, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Communication Disorders.
