Willed Body Donation

There are several Willed Body programs. Each program differs slightly. It is best to call and prearrange any gifts of body donation to science, research or education. Questions to ask when choosing a facility:

  • How is donated tissue used?
  • Who must pay the transportation costs?
  • Is organ donation allowed with body donation?
  • Is there an option to receive cremated remains?
