This show is in the Science Stage auditorium and is for general audiences.
The patient is seriously ill. You have to find out what is wrong and fix it!
But don't worry… you won't have to do it alone. Real doctors and other medical professionals will guide you from "diagnosis through surgery." This interactive theatrical adventure includes role-playing, video clips of actual surgery and information from real cases. Along the way, there is light-hearted fun. After all, laughter is the best medicine!
So, move over Gray's Anatomy. In this program, you will learn about the careers of real medical professionals including the LifeFlight program team, surgeons, anesthetists, diagnostic technicians, surgical nurses, medical equipment designers and more.
Also, find out what IT, Nanotechnology and Robotics have to do with curing patients today.
Developed in partnership with Allegheny General Hospital's Allegheny-Singer Research Institute (ASRI).
