TestimonialThe Alliance continues to provide incredible learning opportunities for the donation and transplantation community. I value the power of education and am committed to sharing known practices that lead to improvement. I am fortunate to have witnessed the evolution of the Alliance as it stemmed from the Organ Donation Breakthrough Collaborative era which I was involved as part of the faculty and realize the importance of continuing such efforts. The Alliance leads with other National organizations in collaboration and commitment to the growth of organ and tissue transplantation.
Our partners are the heart and soul of our organization. For more than 15 years, they have played a vital role providing quality education and programs to advance a shared mission.
