Brittany Luckett joined the Integrative Physiology and Health Science department in August 2012 as a Visiting Instructor. Upon completion of a bachelor of arts in biology from Adrian College (2009), she continued her education at Penn State University College of Medicine in Hershey, Pa., where she earned her master’s degree in human anatomy (2012). Her primary teaching loads are within the Human Physiology series (IPH 225 & 226) and Human Anatomy (IPH 344).
Luckett’s main interest within the IPHS department is sharing the extraordinary experience of working with the human cadaver specimens in the laboratory with students, many of whom have not been exposed to such an experience. As alumni tell stories from their graduate coursework, one of the most common points includes how they are one of the few in their classes of 100+ students with a whole human body cadaver experience. This is an unprecedented opportunity to learn human anatomy first-hand that is not typically offered at the undergraduate level, and Instructor Luckett loves sharing it with the students.
Luckett’s newfound interests include advising students on various research projects with concentrations in exercise and development of a healthy lifestyle, and participating in service opportunities such as Alternative Breaks.
