The annual memorial service commemorating the lives of those who donated their bodies to the Wayne State University School of Medicine Body Bequest Program for medical education will take place inside the chapel at Oakland Hills Memorial Gardens Cemetry.


The one hour, minister-officiated service is held yearly to pay respects to the donors, and includes the burial of their cremated remains.  Donor families are invited to attend the service which is organized by the Body Bequest Program's Mortuary Supervisor and the first year medical students, who serve as pallbearers and ushers.  First year medical students also read the names of those being remembered.
