Visit from a Radiographer
On Wednesday, Etal class were visited by radiographer, Ruth Mather. Ruth gave us a fascinating talk and we learned about so much, including: the development of our bones from infancy to old age; different types of joints and how our skeleton moves; the effect that exercise, diet and lifestyle can have on our bones and also about the role of a radiographer and how we might pursue a similar career ourselves. We also enjoyed meeting Fred the skeleton and looking at some real human bones up close! Thank you so much for coming to speak to us, Ruth.
