7th edition of the 24 heures de sciences event: Run For Your Health!


May 11th and May 12th 2012

The MUHC opens its doors for the 7th edition of Quebec’s science and technology event: 24 heures de science, on May 11th and May 12th 2012.

Just like forensic investigators from the TV show C.S.I, the MUHC’s pathology team will welcome participants on May 12th, at the Montreal Children’s Hospital in order to uncover the ins and outs of pathology; fascinating science and medical specialty unknown by the public.

Your experience with the MUHC’s pathology team does not stop there! Travel through time and learn about pathology and the history of emergency medicine at the Maude Abbott Museum of McGill University. The team will show you bone fragments from soldiers who were wounded during the American Civil War (1861- 1865). Discover what emergency medicine was like at the beginning of 20th century and view organs damaged by a stroke and organs affected by severe infections.

If you are passionate about the human body’s mysteries, we invite you to discover the health related activities presented during 24 heures de science by clicking on the attached Program Run For Your Health!
