(JERICHO, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Joshua A. Lafazan (D - Woodbury) joined with Jericho Union Free School District Superintendent Hank Grishman and Jericho High School teachers and students on Friday, Nov. 18 to unveil the district’s new anatomage table - a cutting-edge teaching tool that was purchased utilizing $75,000 in Community Revitalization Program (CRP) funds.
Anatomage tables are equipped with a virtual library of human and animal cadavers, and in medical settings, can be used as a clinical diagnostic tool because of how it allows for the visualization of any Medical CT, CBCT or MRI scan.
“With this state-of-the-art technology, students will now be able to use this table to virtually dissect cadavers, practice procedures, and gain a greater understanding of the human anatomy that will serve them well in their scientific studies,” Legislator Lafazan said. “It is always a pleasure to work with our local school districts to enrich the classroom experiences that are available to our students.”
