The Anatomy and Physiology class will be holding its Fall 2017 Field Trip on November 16th and 17th, 2017. Students enrolled in the Fall 2017 block schedule classes are eligible to attend. Students will be visiting Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine and Biocomplexity Institute, both in Blacksburg, Virginia, as well as Emory & Henry's School of Health Sciences in Marion, Virginia.
