Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, JABSOM continues to have reduced need for anatomical gifts. Therefore, JABSOM will not be accepting/processing additional donor Anatomical Gift Donation forms after Tuesday, December 20, 2022. Any planned donations will require that the original-signed Anatomical Gift Donation forms be postmarked by December 20, 2022 to be processed. We will not accept any applications by fax or email. Any paperwork received after this date will be held in a secure file with only acknowledgement of receipt until we are able to begin accepting applications again. 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 will be on pause until further notice, we look forward to reopening enrollment in the near future.
IMPORTANT: Those who are current donors, whose donor status is up to date (‘active’ status), will remain enrolled. We will continue to accept body donations of ‘active’ enrolled donors for now. If you have questions about your donor status, we encourage you to either call or email us during our business hours of 8:00AM – 4:30PM, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. However, should the program approach capacity, JABSOM may have to temporarily stop accepting body donations even from enrolled donors. Please check our website for updates: https://jabsom.hawaii.edu/donors/willedbody/. If you have any questions, please contact the Willed Body Program at 808-692-1445 or email@example.com.
