MENANDS, N.Y. (AP) - Albany Medical College is holding a memorial service for the 333 people whose bodies were donated after their deaths to help medical education.

The school says its students and faculty will join relatives of the donors for the tribute Monday at Albany Rural Cemetery in suburban Menands.

The college says its "Anatomical Gift Program" allows students to dissect human bodies and learn more about their structures.

The service is at 1 p.m.
