Along with the renovations to Hobbs-Sigler, the School of Sciences obtained an Anatomage Table. The Table is a virtual cadaver lab with access to multiple virtual cadavers.

      “About three years ago, I got an alumni association mailing from Shenandoah University, which is where I got my Masters and Doctorate in physical therapy, and they had acquired an Anatomage Table,” said Dr. Wendy Williamson, a professor of Anatomy and Physiology. “The article was showing their Table and how they were incorporating it into their anatomy and physiology classes and I thought it looked like a great piece of equipment and I thought it would be great if we had one here. So, I brought it up to Dean Lokar, and said that this would be a great thing for our students, and a great pull for Lynchburg College, at the time.”
