    The University of Iowa, Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Deeded Body Program, held its annual memorial service for those individuals whose bodies we utilized for educational and research purposes at the UI during the past year, at 2:20 p.m. on Friday, September 23, at Parkview Church, Iowa City, Iowa.  The service honors those whose donated bodies aided in the advancement of medical education and science at the UI through studies completed over the past year. 

    The Need for Anatomical Gifts in Medical Education and Research

    The study of human anatomy constitutes an indispensable component of medical education and research. Continual anatomical gifts are essential to the teaching of medical and dental students, postgraduate physicians, nurses, physical therapists, and students in related disciplines.  Any competent person over 18 years of age may donate his or her body for medical education and research.

    The Deeded Body Program is sincerely committed to establishing a dignified, compassionate, and comforting relationship with each of its donors and their families.
