Miller School/UHealth Joins Miami Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency to Celebrate Donate Life Day
In honor of National Donate Life Month this April, the Miller School/UHealth – University of Miami Health System joined forces with the Department of Surgery’s Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency to increase the number of registered organ and tissue donors in the country by 20 million by the end of 2012.
A kickoff event on the medical campus April 20 got the Miller School/UHealth off to a good start toward reaching its goal of registering 1,000 employees as organ, tissue and eye donors before year’s end. More than 350 people took information about the critical need for organ, eye and tissue donations to help prevent death in patients who are waiting for the gift of life through transplantation.
To designate your wish to become an organ, tissue or eye donor after death, or if you already have signed up through the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and would like to update your profile, please visit www.DonateLifeFlorida.org. To be counted in UHealth’s Workplace Partnership for Life campaign select UHealth Workplace Campaign in the “Hear About Us” section during registration.
