Even at her sickest, Juana Hernandez believed in helping her family and community. With her donor's kidney, she has much more energy to continue serving those around her.
This two-day workshop is facilitated by Donate Life Northwest, a nonprofit committed to educating residents of Oregon and Washington about organ, eye, and tissue donation and transplant. Participants who participate in this workshop are currently on the kidney transplant waitlist at OHSU, Legacy, or the Portland VA.
Waitlisted kidney patients and support partners of their choosing meet virtually as a group to learn about living donation and explore creative ways to extend their networks and seek a living donor.
Session 1 (March 9, 9am-12pm) will cover:
- Background information on living donation
- Building your support system
- A Q&A panel of living kidney donors and recipients
Session 2 (March 16, 9am-12pm) will cover:
- How to build your story
- Outreach ideas
- A Q&A panel of transplant center staff
By registering, you are signing up for both sessions.
