Here’s a little landmark many of us at OHSU have walked by dozens of times. However, until yesterday, I never stopped to read it.
It’s a plaque that recognizes the individuals and families who have joined with the OHSU Body Donation program to help teach our next generation of health professionals including doctors, nurses and dentists.
The plaque reads:
“In memory of those men and women who have advanced medical education and research through the bequest of their bodies to the school of medicine, University of Oregon Health Sciences Center.
May their souls rest in peace.”
For more information about the OHSU Body Donation Program, visit this link. In addition, we’re planning to give you more insight into the program in an upcoming edition of our radio show on KXL: The OHSU Effect: Inside Health & Science.
We’ll let you know when it will air.
