Annual Memorial Service

Each year, to show their appreciation to the donors and their families, medical students and staff participate in a Memorial Service to honor these “silent teachers”.


2017 Willed Body Memorial Service

The 2017 Willed Body Memorial Service is Saturday, April 8.


Loved ones may gather at the Waikiki end of Magic Island before 2 p.m. on April 8, to watch the scattering of cremains offshore. MD students will carry the remains of anatomy body donors onboard canoes, and paddle to a spot where, with great gratitude, they will give a final “mahalo” to those who have been their silent teachers. The canoes will launch at 2 p.m., so attendees are encouraged to plan ahead, allowing extra time for parking and walking to the scattering point off Magic Island. To assist you, John A. Burns School of Medicine MD students will be stationed along the path from the parking lot to the scattering viewing site.
