The Alliance Conversation Series brings you cost-free, fast-paced collaborative opportunities that highlight successful donation and transplantation practices across the country. Through shared insight, multidisciplinary experts identify solutions to critical challenges affecting the community of practice and actively share them for open discussion and broader knowledge of effective practices.
Overview: Improving access to transplant care is a challenge in many health care organizations serving historically marginalized populations. The donation and transplant communities are faced with barriers such as health literacy, culture, and language.

Are these successes translated to other marginalized groups? We are looking forward to a robust exchange of ideas.
