The University of Baguio (UB) School of Criminal Justice and Public Safety (SCJPS) conducted workshops on forensic anthropology which focused on the analysis of human skeletal remains from the context of forensic science.



The first of the two-batch workshop was held last Oct. 14 at Camp Bado Dangwa in La Trinidad. The second was conducted on Oct. 25 at Teachers’ Camp.



The workshops were participated in by UB forensic science and criminology students and graduates, medical students of Saint Louis University, personnel from the Philippine National Police, and medical doctors.



Matthew Go from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign served as the resource speaker. Go is an affiliate scholar in the archaeological studies program at the University of the Philippines-Diliman.



Dr. Jaime Rodrigo Leal of the UB-SCJPS also delivered a lecture.



The workshops were organized by the SCJPS Forensic Science Society, SCJPS Junior Police Club, and the SCJPS Preclaurus Society. – Andrea Nicole Plete
