Each year, Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine (WMed) Body Donation Program conducts a memorial service to honor our donors for their generous gift. Medical students, faculty, and staff participate in the memorial. Families are encouraged to attend the memorial service to celebrate the contribution made and allow the students to express their gratitude for these silent teachers.
