The Day of the Dead Comes Alive at the College of Physicians!

Misc items from the Mutter Museum Day of the Dead event, 10/31/15

This past Saturday, several of out Karabots Junior Fellows helped deliver tricks and treats to visitors of the Mütter Museum.

On October 31, the Mütter Museum hosted its annual Day of the Dead celebration, a fun, family-friendly event honoring the Mexican festival Dia de los Muertos. Visitors to the Museum took part in traditional activities, including designing sugar skulls, paper flower making, and sampling festive foods. Attendees also took part in face painting in addition to exploring the Mütter Museum’s unique, eclectic collection of medical specimens.

What made the event especially memorable were the numerous students from the Karabots Junior Fellows Program who were in attendance. Not satisfied with attending, they donated their time: they volunteered with set-up and clean-up, connected with visitors and even helped out with the activities. They served as great ambassadors for the College, and we are proud of their dedication!
