SDAHO is joining other hospital associations in the annual National Hospital Organ Donation Campaign sponsored by the Division of Transplantation, Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This campaign challenges hospitals to educate employees, patients, visitors and the community about the crucial need for organ, eye and tissue donation. We encourage individuals to register as donors and provide them with opportunities to sign up. The campaign, which has helped register nearly 400,000 people to state registries, aims to add more donor designations by May 2017.
SDAHO and LifeSource, the non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives through organ, eye and tissue donation across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and portions of western Wisconsin, ask for your involvement and support. We invite hospitals to help educate staff members, patients and their families, visitors and the extended community on the critical need for organ donation.
If you are interested in becoming actively involved in the campaign, please contact LifeSource’s Cary Wencil. And please take a few minutes today to add your name to our state’s donor registry. Someday you may save a life!
