The need for increased education on organ and tissue donation and donor designation is critical to saving lives. Thousands of lives are saved every year, but thousands more continue to wait. On average, 18 lives are lost every day due to the lack of organs available for transplant.
Media professionals can help increase education on donation by sharing stories involving local resources, including donor families, recipients, and professionals within the field of organ and tissue donation and transplantation.
