George Washington University School of Medicine Body Donor Program is a body donation organization based in Washington, D.C., Washington, D.C..Donating your body to science for medical research, training, or special 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.
