This week, The Alliance awarded more than 300 Certificates of Service to its volunteers across the organ donation and transplantation professional community. In 2022, 343 professionals donated their time and expertise to support The Alliance Board of Directors, its three national leadership councils and more than 20 active workgroups and faculties – marking a 96 percent increase in volunteerism since 2020.
“The Alliance was founded on the critical need to collaborate across the healthcare continuum,” said Karri Hobson-Pape, Executive Director of The Alliance. “With the support of these incredible volunteers, we drive community collaboration, innovation sharing and enhanced learning experiences. In short, we equip a modern profession of lifesavers together.”
Annually, The Alliance reaches an audience of more than 20,000 professionals across the healthcare continuum, providing a broad portfolio of learning programs and effective practice resources. All programs are powered by volunteer support and the voluntary financial contributions of partner organizations.
“We are incredibly grateful to the hundreds of volunteers who support The Alliance,” said Deanna Fenton, Senior Manager of Educational Program Development and Operations. “We are moved by their desire to improve our field, thereby enhancing the ways we serve donor families and patients awaiting a lifesaving transplant.”
Symbolizing a small token of immense gratitude, these awards will arrive by mail to all active volunteers within the coming days. “We hope they will proudly display it as a symbol of their enduring commitment to advancement and transformation across our field,” said Hobson-Pape.
