Once a year, in the fall, a non-denominational interment service is held at the Natalie and Lansing B. Lee, Jr. Auditorium to honor the individuals whose bodies were generously donated for study at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University.

This years event will be held Friday, November 17, 2023 at 1:00 pm at the Augusta University Health Science Campus in the Natalie and Lansing B. Lee, Jr. Auditorium.

The memorial service is conducted jointly by the students, faculty, and chaplains from the Colleges of Medicine, Dentistry, Allied Health, Graduate Studies, Nursing and the Augusta University/UGA Medical Partnership with the donors’ families and friends as our honored guests.

The Memorial Service provides an opportunity for the students to honor and show their appreciation to the donors for making their bodies available for study and research. It is only through the physical study of the human body that we can gain the basic information essential to the education of future health care professionals.
