Body Donation Thanksgiving and Remembrance Service 2017

UCD Human Anatomy hold a Body Donation Thanksgiving and Remembrance Service for 2017. The event will take place on Monday 24th April at 7pm in Our Lady’s Seat of Wisdom Church, UCD, followed by a reception at the Kevin Barry Foyer, Charles Institute, UCD, Belfield.

This service is to give thanks and remember those people who generously donated their bodies to clinical education in University College Dublin. It is an opportunity for both staff and students to show the donors’ families how much we appreciate them.

The staff and students of the UCD School of Medicine deeply appreciate the generous donations which have been made in the past and which are continuing through our Body Donation Program. This program allows us to continue teaching and research in medical science, training the next generation of doctors, radiographers, nurses and physiotherapists. 

The ceremony will last approximately 45 minutes and will consist of speeches from staff, student testimonials and music from students. There will be a procession of light, during which the names of the donors will be read aloud.

To attend this event please RSVP.
