From the Class of 2022

In memory of those who have donated their bodies, the Class of 2022 has gifted a tree to be planted in May of 2019 on the grounds of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester Campus: in hopes that patients and future students may enjoy the blossoming tree and remember our Anatomical donors. In addition, a tree will be planted in honor of each of the donors in the White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire.
