TCOM Class of 2012 begins Legacy Project tree planting

The Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM) Class of 2012 planted a tree on campus dedicated to the people who donated or willed their bodies for science. Called the Legacy Project, the TCOM Class of 2012 hopes each new class of TCOM students will continue the tradition.

In association with this new living memorial program, family members of Willed Body Program donors gathered on April 24 to remember the donors and plant a living legacy. Presentations were made by Diaa Osman, TCOM Class of 2012; Harold Sheedlo,  PhD, assistant professor of cell biology and genetics; Roy Martin, DMIN, assistant professor of clinical ethics; and family members of some of those who had donated their bodies. As a result of the program, a new little gem magnolia tree was planted between the Gibson D. Lewis Health Science Library and the Patient Care Center, next to the circle drive. An oak plaque explaining why the tree was planted will be replaced in the coming weeks with a permanent, marble marker.
