As you are planning for the future, and for the future of your family, you might also consider the larger picture.
Chiropractic education and research has existed for over one hundred years and has helped countless generations. Making a donation of your body is an especially generous gift for many generations to come. Such a bequest enhances the training of prospective chiropractors, helps secure the future of a meaningful chiropractic education, and may lead to the development of new healing techniques.
The donation of bodies for education is not a new concept, but a widely accepted procedure in Texas and many other states. There is a tremendous need throughout the educational and healthcare community for human bodies for education and research. Your donation through the Parker University Anatomical Gift Program helps us to meet this need. We appreciate your inquiry and interest in our Anatomical Gift Program and each person who participates contributes substantially to the education of future chiropractors and to chiropractic research.
We have placed the necessary forms below. The forms should be printed, completed in triplicate, and signed by two witnesses. Please send the original form to: Parker University, Anatomical Gift Program, 2540 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, TX 75229-5668. One copy should be kept with your other important papers and one copy should be forwarded to your next of kin. After we receive the completed forms, we will send a wallet card to you for future use.
