Human bodies are an indispensable aid in medical teaching and research. The basis of all medical knowledge is human anatomy; human anatomy can be learned only by a study of the human body. Without this study there could be no doctors, no surgery, no alleviation of disease or repair of injury.Ê
University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Anatomical Gift Program is a body donation organization based in Little Rock, Arkansas.Donating your body for medical research, training, or specialty needs like forensic testing is one of the most meaningful and cost-effective after-death funeral options a person can choose. You should take care in evaluating all of your body donation options, and when possible, pre-enrolling in one. Always make a back-up plan, though, since sometimes bodies aren't accepted and you and your family will need to know how to proceed with your death-care.
