Gross Anatomy Lab Lecture – Upper Body- Central New York Unit

For centuries, Gross Anatomy has provided modern medicine with a strong foundation for exploration, information gathering, and research. Through the careful palpation of dissected cadavers, this class will offer massage therapists the ability to enhance their understanding of the human body and anatomy, especially the skeletal system.
Learning objectives:
