“It’s humbling to set aside your own life for a while so that another person can reclaim theirs.”
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 attend this workshop should be currently on the kidney transplant waitlist at OHSU, Legacy, or the Portland VA.
Waitlisted kidney patients meet virtually (via Zoom) as a group to learn about living donation and explore creative ways to extend their networks and seek a living donor.
Session 1 (Saturday, March 4, 2023 from 9:00am to noon)
- Background information on living donation

Session 2 (Saturday, March 11, 2023 from 9:00am to noon)
