Sept. 17, 2017 – Hemlock Society of San Diego Meeting

We learned about options for using your body for good after you die, including tissue and organ donation, as well as body donation to universities for use by medical students to practice operations. Also discussed were ways to save money on funeral costs and the many ways ashes from cremation can be incorporated into everyday items, including jewelry and even paint.
