On March 6th, 2019, Doctors Robert Hill and Steven Schneider and their best students from the Anatomy Lab at Hofstra’s Zucker School of Medicine were guest presenters of North Shore's Science Society! The focus was The Brain: Like You’ve Never Seen It Before. Twenty two students received instruction from seasoned professional anatomists as they taught brain structure using models, visuals and actual sheep brains. This event was the seventh for the Science Society for the 2018-2019 academic year. Check out the interesting photos of the interactive event!
Dr. Yehuda Sabiner - The First Haredi Jew to Complete Medical School
February 25, 2018
North Shore students from the Science Society and Medical Minds Club had the honor of meeting and hearing Dr. Yehuda Sabiner speak with those of our students who are actively engaged in some form or another of extracurricular science learning. What makes his story unique is that he is a Gerrer Chassid form the city of Beni Brak in Israel. Typically, Jews from such insular communities as the Gerrer CHassidim do not send their children to Medical school. In fact, Dr. Sabiner is the first ever to go to the Technion to become a doctor. His story was one of determination and hope. His opening line to the presentation was perhaps the most powerful. He said "If you leave this lecture tonight knowing that if you want something bad enough and dream big, nothing can stand in your way."
Take a look at the great photos (below) from the event!
Dr. Robert Hill is associate professor of science education at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell. He helps direct the 100-week-long Structure curriculum, where students learn anatomy, embryology, histology, radiology, and physical diagnosis. He has discovered fossils on four continents and has published several research papers on paleontology, human anatomy, and medical education. Hearing him speak on knowledgeably on this topic was a real privilege.
Yay! Go Girls in Science!
Would you like to make the laws of the universe work for you and hear some great tunes? Science Society students Hannah Shedlo, Jasmine Namdar, Rachel Sarraf, Hadar Leybov, and Julia Zar got to do just that when they went to see the amazing pop musician and physicist, Christine McKinley! She spoke about her book, Physics for Rock Stars and shared some of her favorite tracks on Wednesday night at Hofstra University. Our lucky gals got to meet Christine and take this fun pic with her!
