I have been involved with the Alliance now for the past few years and have come to appreciate the depth of knowledge and resources they have to offer. They are there to help everyone involved in transplant, including the patients, providers, social workers, coordinators, and even just the general public who want to know more. There is so much they offer to the world of transplant un an understated way, and our transplant program has directly benefitted from being involved.
