Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19 pandemic, the Willed Body Program of the University of Hawaiʻi John A. Burns School of Medicine will temporarily close and will be unable to accept body donations as of the close of business Monday, July 10, 2023, until further notice. We wholeheartedly apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. We urge donors and/or their loved ones to look for alternative arrangements at this time. If a donor passes away during this period of closure, we ask that the donor’s loved ones or other appropriate individual(s) kindly notify us so that we may update our database.
In the meantime, new enrollment paperwork will continue to be screened with only acknowledgement of receipt until we are able to accept new applicants. The support from our community to the Willed Body Program has been tremendous. We are deeply grateful to all donors who ensure JABSOM’s mission of attaining lasting optimal health for all continues. While donor enrollment & body donations will be on pause until further notice, we look forward to reopening in the near future.
Thank you for your understanding.
