To all of our participants in the Willed Body Program at LSUHS
The LSUHS Willed Body Program Will Resume Accepting Body Donations Starting 1/25/2021
We would like to thank everyone for their understanding about the temporary hiatus of our Willed Body Program that was initiated last March due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As you know, this was done to protect our Faculty, Staff, and Students from possible COVID-19 infection. With the availability of the vaccine against COVID-19, we believe that we can safely resume accepting body donations of deceased donors starting on January 25th, 2021.
Although we believe that the vaccine will offer a substantial level of protection to our health care community, we would ask our healthcare partners, who have been key participants in our Willed Body Program, not to send remains of body donors who have passed away from COVID-19, or causes related to COVID-19 infection.
For any information/clarification of our Willed Body Program Policies, please contact the Office of the Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy at 318-675-5312 or refer to these webpages.
