Pumpkins with Hydrocephalus, Maniac, Toxic Encephalopathy, Cephaloma and Hematemesis
North Lamar High School’s Medical Terminology students hosted their first annual ‘Pumkinology’ Contest.
Kenda Waldroup instructed her students to use medical terms they have learned this semester to create a diagnosis for their pumpkins. The students had to research their diagnosis and write a brief paper to go with their pumpkin. The pumpkins were then put on display in the library for students and staff to cast their votes.
