What is Anatomy Academy?
Anatomy Academy is an outreach and research program aimed at combating childhood obesity, promoting healthy living and encouraging the pursuit of higher education through the teaching of anatomy and basic nutrition.
As an Anatomy Academy mentor, you will teach small groups of 6-8 students with a co-mentor at elementary schools (4th-6th grades). There are many different schools that participate here in Utah Valley and in Salt Lake.
No previous anatomy or teaching experience is needed- each week a lesson plan of basic anatomy, nutrition and activity ideas is provided.
Volunteer Commitment: The time commitment is approximately 1.5-3 hrs/week, once a week for 7 consecutive weeks. (Hours ultimately depend on your elementary school location.) Consistency for the kids is essential, so please plan on being present each week should you choose to participate.
How do I get involved?

I understood that I am making a positive impact in their lives. Kids develop dreams in life at early ages, and I believe that Anatomy Academy helped them to cultivate dreams of being future nurses and physicians.
