October 13, 2015 — SCIENCE ON TAP @ Goodwood Brewing Co. formerly Bluegrass Brewing Co. 636 E Main St Lou, KY 40202

Scientific Proofs are timely discussions on mature science topics led by a wide variety of area scientists, leaders, and professionals. Most events are 21+ and all are FREE… minus the drinks!

DESCRIPTION:
The University of Louisville Willed Body Program receives approximately 200 self-enrolled whole body donors per year. However, prior to the 1960s most cadaveric dissections performed in Louisville and the nation were from unclaimed bodies. Louisville even had its own “resurrectionists” known to have procured bodies for the handful of medical schools that existed in Louisville during the mid-to-late 1800s.

Come and hear stories of the early days of cadaver dissection in the Louisville area and to learn more about the current procedures for donating your body to science from the director of the Willed Body Program at UofL, Dr. Nicole Herring.
