National Donate Life Day
April 16 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am
Tune in to your local news station or visit the UofL Health Facebook page at 10 a.m. April 16 in observation of National Donate Life Day.
Right now, there are 114,000 patients waiting on a lifesaving transplant. Did you know that one donor can save eight of those patients’ lives?
To show your support, we encourage all team members to wear blue and green or a Donate to Life shirt to help raise awareness of the lifesaving power of organ donation. UofL Health will also be hosting a flag-raising ceremony and moment of silence in the Donor Memorial Garden between UofL Health – UofL Hospital and UofL Health – Brown Cancer Center.
Drs. Glen Franklin and Lina Mackelaite will be speaking on behalf of the UofL Health Trauma team and UofL Health – Trager Transplant Center. Chaplain Frank Woggon will lead a prayer as we take a moment of silence at exactly 10:08 a.m. to honor the donor lives lost.
