Service of Gratitude – Held on Friday, September 11, 2009 at Canon Chapel

Gratitude Ceremony 2009The first year Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students, having just finished their Anatomy course, held a Service of Gratitude to honor the gift of cadavers they received to pursue their studies in anatomy. This non-denominational service was held at Emory’s Canon Chapel and was attended by the DPT program faculty and students along with families and friends of the students.

Students read passages about “giving” from their own works composed for the service and known authors. Additionally, students rendered vocal performances and displayed their own anatomical drawings as an offering of their gratitude. On behalf of the faculty, Dr. Zoher Kapasi, course director for anatomy, spoke at the service. The University Chaplain, Reverend Susan Henry-Crowe, Dean of the Chapel and Religious Life, led the service and was followed at the end by lighting of candles.

The Service of Gratitude is held every year at the end of the Anatomy course and is organized by the students. The service reinforces the values of caring and giving within our DPT students as they proceed in their training to become Doctors of Physical Therapy.
