National Organ and Tissue Awareness Week
April 19 to 25 was National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week. The Transplant and Regenerative Medicine Centre at the Hospital for Sick Children hosted a one day Organ and Tissue Awareness Event on April 21, 2016. This event promoted awareness of organ donation and provided information on how to register to be an organ donor (beadonor.ca). Transplant team members were on hand to answer any questions. TRMC members wore green to show their support for Organ and Tissue Awareness.
Canadian Transplant Association volunteers were also in attendance to help provide information and promote the Canadian Transplant Games which will be taking place in Toronto August 8 - 13, 2016.
