Each year the Tufts University Dental, Medical, and Physician Assistant students hold a memorial service in honor of donors to the Anatomy Lab. It is at this service where students acknowledge the lives and generosity of Anatomy Lab donors. It is a celebration of life, a reflection on character, and a chance for the Tufts community to come together with the families of the donors to extend thanks.
For the service, students write poetry, submit works of art, and share their musical talents to honor the donors. The ceremony concludes with a reading of the donors names and is followed by a reception where students are given the opportunity to meet the families of the donors. This is an opportunity for our students to extend their gratitude and honor the lives of those that have contributed to their medical education.
