Lexington Christian Academy Physiology and Anatomy classes discuss how to save a life

On Tuesday, December 20th, Lexington Christian Academy students were visited by Dr. Alex Cist, a physician ethicist at Massachusetts General Hospital and faculty member of Harvard Medical School’s Center for Bioethics. Dr. Cist was welcomed by Ms. Irene Campbell’s Anatomy and Physiology classes, and shared the expertise in medical ethics consultation that she has amassed in a career spanning over 30 years.

Dr. Cist, also an LCA parent (Natalie ’19, Katie ’21), spent two full class periods with Ms. Campbell’s students, introducing role-playing scenarios and provoking insightful comments and discussions between the high schoolers. In these scenarios, Cist assigned students to take turns playing the parts of doctors, nurses, ethics consultants, patients and patients’ families.
