Science moves fast. And that means those who teach science have to work hard to stay on top of the latest trends, information, and methodologies. 

To help professors who teach Human Anatomy and Physiology stay on the leading edge, CNM is proud to host the 37th annual Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) Conference from May 24-28. 

Over four days, hundreds of professors from around the country and the world will share information, attend presentations, and meet with presenters in order to take in the newest information that will help them in the classroom. 

“This conference is essential for helping professors be better teachers and for ensuring students are better informed,” says Mark Danley, a CNM Biology Instructor and the chair of the conference committee.

The first two days of the conference take place at the Albuquerque Convention Center where attendees will hear from a variety of speakers including Dr. Phil Lister from CNM who will talk about the evolution of  bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Nearly 100 research posters will be on exhibit,  and companies that publish books and sell models and various teaching tools that can be used in lectures and labs will have information available. 

The second two days will be at CNM and attendees will have the opportunity to attend a wide variety of workshops.

“The HAPS conference has been hosted all around the country, and we’re honored and excited to have it at CNM this year. It’s going to be a great event,” Mark says.
