TestimonialI have really enjoyed participating in the OPO/Transplant Center and Conversation series Workgroups. I have also had the privilege to be an Alliance speaker and moderator. The Alliance is dedicated to assisting our industry to help more individuals through donation and transplantation, expanding our learning opportunities to create space for sharing best practices and new ideas. I look forward to continue to participate with the amazing Alliance team.
