Willed Body Donation Program
More and more people are making arrangements to donate their bodies each year to medical education after death. The gift this offers to humankind is immeasurable and is deemed “priceless” to our future doctors and researchers who through the hands-on experience gain knowledge that cannot be acquired by any other means.
