November 13, 2017 Army and Navy Academy Students Visit the Clinical Physiology Lab Dr. Hargens welcomed 21 students on Monday visiting from the Army and Navy Academy in Carlsbad. They were being hosted by their instructor, Dr. Robin Cowen, and the dean of academics, Ethan Segovia. Dr. Cowen spent time with the lab this past summer as a Fellow of the American Physiological Society and had introduced most of the students to microgravity with the video she had put together during her time here. Many of the students expressed an interest in science and technology and were familiar with the concepts of fluid shifts and the challenges presented with life in space. During their visit, the students hears from Dr. Hargens and how he got started in his academic career and ultimately what brought him to space physiology. The students also got a hands on experience with some of the lab equipment such as the inversion table, a blood pressure monitor and ultrasound. They also participated in a tour of the clinic with a few volunteers getting to experience artificial gravity in the lower body negative pressure (LBNP) chamber. Presentations were given by Rachel Becker, Neeki Ashari, Jessie Fischman, Sherina Malkani and Robert Healey. Thanks again to everyone who participated! It was a great way to introduce a topic that we are very passionate about!
