Great article on whole body donation. You covered almost all of the bases and gave a clear explanation of what a body donor is and how the process may vary.
I work for a nationwide whole body donor program that offers individuals an opportunity to donate their bodies to science. These donors contribute to research projects for Alzheimer’s, multiple types of cancer, heart disease, and more. We also train thousands of physicians each year on the latest in medical advancements. For those individuals that meet current research criteria, we provide a no-cost donation including transportation, cremation, and return of the cremated remains within three to five weeks.
We find that many individuals choose whole body donation for themselves or their loved ones as an opportunity to give back to future generations. Whole body donation is an extremely personal decision and anyone interested should do their research and work with an accredited program to carry out their final wishes with dignity.
