Program to inform about body donation

Published 7:01 am Sunday, August 21, 2016

Shaun Heath from the Mayo Clinic will be at the Mower County Senior Center at 1 p.m. on Wednesday to inform you of their body donation program.

The gift of your body to Mayo Clinic is valued, honored and respected. The study of human anatomy is one of the most important courses in the education of physicians, nurses and all health care professionals.

Body donation plays a critical role in helping medical and health science students master the complexity of human anatomy.
