Service of Gratitude Held on Friday, September 5, 2014 at Canon Chapel

2014 GratitudeAfter successful completion of their Anatomy course, the first year Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students, 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. Attending the service were the DPT Program faculty and students as well as friends and families of the students.

The students gave speeches, sang songs as well as performed instrumentals and gave tribute to people who decided to donate their bodies to research as an offering of their gratitude. On behalf of the faculty, Dr. Zoher Kapasi, course director for Anatomy and Director of the DPT Program, spoke at the service. Reverend Lisa Garvin, Associate Dean of the Chapel and Religious Life, led the service. In addition to giving opening remarks, following a lighting of candles, Reverend Garvin concluded with closing reflections.

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.
