MAKING THE MOST OF IT
If you were to take a closer look through the front door, you would see a 650-square-foot conference/classroom suite with a series of tables on both sides of the room and two chairs at each. Large screens for viewing of training videos or surgical proceedings taking place in the adjacent lab are situated on the wall behind the front desk. Videoconferencing allows for inclusion of widespread audiences in remote locations. When a lab is underway, you’d probably see surgically garbed participants. Beyond this room is the modern 4000- square-foot surgical skills training center, an operating room type of milieu with state-of-the-art instruments and cameras.
Individuals in many states around the country can choose to donate their bodies to this non-profit corporation that is the largest whole-body donation registry. It is conveniently located close to three international airports. Advance registration enables a swift and smooth transition once death has occurred. Instead of contacting a funeral home, a family member connects by phone with an AGR representative who sets the wheels in motion and arranges for transport of the body to their facility. Additionally, the death will be registered in the appropriate state’s department of records.
