Wednesday Regents Prep is happening! Speak with your core subject teachers to see if they are offering prep in the areas you need so you'll succeed on the June Regents!

**************MEDICAL TERM/ QUESTION OF THE DAY!***********************************
Today's Medical terms come from the monthly newsletter of "Medical Terminology Daily"which can be found at:

“The root term [-cephal-] is Greek, arising from the word... meaning 'head.' It was later latinzed as [cephalicus]. The applications of this root term are multiple, as follows:

-Cephalic: The suffix [-ic] means 'pertaining to,' therefore, 'pertaining to the head.'

-Encephalon: The prefix [en-] means 'inside or within,' therefore 'inside the head.' Encephalon is another term for brain

-Anencephalic: The prefix [an-] means 'without.' Anencephalic is a condition where the brain does not develop.

-Cephalalgia: The suffix [algia] means 'pain.' Cephalalgia is the medical term for 'headache.'"
