Donating your body to medical science in Costa Rica Following four previous successful donor events, more members of our expat community have expressed the wish to donate their body to medical science in Costa Rica. One again, staff of the Medical school of the University of Costa Rica are willing to come to San Isidro to enable potential donors to complete the paperwork and avoid the journey to San Jose. The visit will take place on Thursday 28 March 2019.
