CADAVER SHORTAGE

ABERDEEN, S.D. _ The coordinator of a University of South Dakota program that provides human bodies for anatomy and physiology classes says there’s a severe shortage of donors. Coordinator Sara Bird told the Aberdeen American News that the program needs 60-65 human body donations every year but that it had just 36 bodies at the start of the 2018-19 school year. Bird says the shortage of donations means the program has to turn away schools, limit requests and reduce the number of students in programs. SENT: 325 words.
