Description: Dr. Love offers a vibrant learning experience of the human body, and is sensitive to your concerns about mortality and the body as a vessel of the spirit.

She will also tailor her instruction to specific individual interests wherever possible.

Course notes: There will not be a formal break during the session. You are encouraged to bring a beverage or light snack that would be kept outside the lab for a personal break.

The class is held in the cadaver lab where the bodies are preserved with formaldehyde. Although the lab has excellent air ventilation and circulation, the university provides formaldehyde blocking respirators for class participants. Lab coats and nitrile gloves are also provided for personal protection. 

Please wear: Comfortable shoes since you will be on your feet during the class hours.
