Tomorrow is PA Donor Day, providing the Pennsylvania hospital community with another opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation.
In Pennsylvania, more than 7,000 patients are on the transplant waiting list. PA Donor Day reminds everyone about how they can make a difference to someone in need.
If you haven’t signed up already, here are five reasons you should consider registering to become an organ and tissue donor through Donate Life Pennsylvania:
HAP supports organ and tissue donation and has partnered with the Center for Organ Recovery & Education and the Gift of Life Donor Program—along with the Pennsylvania Department of Health—to host HAP’s 2022 Donate Life Pennsylvania Hospital Challenge.
The challenge encourages Pennsylvania hospitals to increase organ donation awareness and designations within their hospitals and communities. This year’s challenge is April 1–30, 2022, in conjunction with National Donate Life Month.
As we approach PA Donor Day, HAP encourages everyone to spread awareness about organ and tissue donation. To learn more about PA Donor Day and the HAP Donate Life Pennsylvania Hospital Challenge, contact Mary Marshall, HAP’s director, workforce and professional services.
