LUBBOCK, Texas -

A special memorial service was held in remembrance of body donation.

The Texas Tech Health Sciences Center honored those who have donated their bodies to the Willed Body Program, benefiting education.

Students, faculty and family members visited the Resthaven Memorial Park for a special commemoration ceremony.

The donated bodies are used by students studying medicine and pharmacy.

Jackie Clark, Doctorate of Physical Therapy, said, "We get to basically unveil these people who have donated their bodies to our programs and learn about them from our perspective. Their muscles, how they work, their nerves, their brain, their heart, everything -- head to toe. We get to live their life with them."

These cadavers are a valuable contribution to the TTUHSC institution and to medicine.
