National Donation Leadership Council

The Donation Leadership Council will work to develop and provide resources and education to improve and advance the organ donation process. The council will support hospital and donation professionals’ efforts in the sharing of knowledge, data and successful practices as it relates to identification of potential donors, family support and communication, and optimizing the availability of organs for transplantation.
