          About This Event

          Summary

          The 2014 International Human Cadaver Prosection Team will hold a memorial service for service honoring all of the first patients (anatomical donors) at 1:15 p.m. Thursday, July 31, on the east side of the Dunes Medical Professional Building (Anatomical Donor Memorial) in Gary, Ind.

          During this Service, members of the 2014 International Human Cadaver Prosection Team, faculty, physicians and staff will give thanks for the gifts of our the anatomical donors and express their thoughts regarding the privilege that has been afforded to them by patients gifting their bodies to medical education and research and the meaning that this experience has had for them.

          Flags will also be presented for military veterans and first patients, including:

          • Lydia Grady, World War II  U.S. Army Nurses Corps and a former Gary, Ind., resident, who fought for the equal rights of African-Americans; equal education and desegregation. 

          • Ralph Edward (Ike) Donnelly, World War II Veteran, fighter/bomber pilot, who escaped German Prison Camps – twice; once leading prisoners back to the American lines.  

          The International Human Cadaver Prosection Program, an innovative, hands-on medical program medical that is the only one in the country which allows non-physician and non-medical student the opportunity to become active volunteers in the IUSM-NW gross anatomy laboratory.  The program is directed by Dr. Ernest Talarico, Ph.D., associate director of medical education and associate professor of human gross anatomy and embryology at the IU School of Medicine-Northwest.

          Each year, the program concludes with a memorial ceremony honoring the individuals who selflessly gave their bodies to help educate the next generation of physicians. Everyone is invited to join in this this celebration of life and of service to humanity.
