Music is something that allows people to bond and grow, and at SHAD, this certainly isn’t an exception.
Today, we were given the amazing experience of performing at McMaster’s Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre. Not only did we get the chance to share something that we are passionate about with people who need it, we also listened to a fascinating lecture by Dr. Ian Dayes about radiation oncology. Before arriving at the hospital, Dr. Rita Cossa gave an equally interesting lecture introducing us to marketing.
After we ate lunch, half of us headed off to learn about the science of baking while the other half of us participated in an anatomy lab. As I was in the second group, we headed off to learn about the human body through interacting with real human bodies. For myself, this was a really life changing moment, not only because of the knowledge I gained, but also because it was truly amazing to be able to hold a human brain in my own hands.
Lastly, we closed the day by sampling cookies baked by the other SHADs, including ones that were made with maple syrup, bananas or without butter.
