Diseased Organs Display

The Diseased Organ Display is a little hard to find. The key is that you'll need to go to the 2nd floor facing the parking lot. During our family travel vlog on YouTube (Santos Chronicles) we were able to check it out and also share our love of Roadside America.

Diseased Organs

There is a small collection of diseased organ parts in a display case on the second floor of the College of DuPage's Health and Science Center, near room HSC2303. The collection includes a normal lung, a smoker's lung, a lung with emphysema, and a cancerous lung. Also on display are a small pile of human gallstones, donated by a Mrs. Cotton in 1985.

One floor down, near room HSC1311, is a female chicken's reproductive organs.
