Honoring Body Donations

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Des Moines University is honoring dozens of people who donated their bodies in the last year for medical education.
   The school will host a memorial service Friday at the Olsen Medical Education Center on campus. More than 60 people from Iowa, Illinois and Missouri are scheduled to be honored.
   The nondenominational service has been held for more than 40 years. Military honors will be performed for veteran donors, and family members will be given a lapel pin.
   A school official says the donations help educate students about human anatomy. More than 2,600 bodies have been donated to the school since 1955.
