Susan Potter wanted to make a difference in life and in death. “That was my last will and testament: to leave something behind that would have an impact on the whole human race,” she said in a video for the CU School of Medicine. So, she decided to donate her body to science. She had seen a newspaper article about the Visible Human Project. After their death, a man and woman were frozen, sectioned and photographed for the world to see and learn from on the internet. Susan decided she wanted to do that, too, so she tracked down the man in charge at the CU School of Medicine. Vic Spitzer, PhD, eventually agreed to take her on. “She just persisted,” he said.
