Bequeathing your body to medical science will benefit society for generations to come. Remains bequeathed to the university are used primarily in regularly scheduled courses in the training of healthcare professionals.
Kentucky and Indiana law permits you to will your body to a medical or dental school, but a donor must be at least 18 years of age (there is no upper age limit) and there is no monetary reimbursement to you or your family for your body. It is illegal in the United States to sell your body or any part thereof.
If you would like more information, please call Stephen Anderson, coordinator of the Body Bequeathal Program, at 502-852-5744.
