Donating Your Body for Science
When you applied for your drivers license, you may have checked the box to be an organ donor, an uncontroversial option that has saved almost 30,000 lives a year. But have you ever considered donating your body for science?
Representatives of Science Care, the worlds largest accredited whole-body donation program, will provide a frank and informative discussion of end-of-life options, including burial, cremation and whole-body donation, either to a medical school for training physicians or to a non-transplant tissue bank for medical research.
They will discuss the pros and cons of each choice and explain the differences between donating your body to a medical school versus a tissue bank.
Monday Morning Lectures are held in the Renaissance Theater at 10 a.m., except for Jan. 21, which is 9:30 a.m. Tickets to all Monday Lectures are $5 per person and may be purchased at the door of the Renaissance Theater on the day of the lecture.
