Nevada Donor Network Brings Donor Awareness Download

00:23 Download September 19th, 2021

Nevada Donor Network is a federally designated 501(c)3 not-for-profit organ procurement organization (OPO) also responsible for facilitating tissue and cornea donation statewide. Founded in 1987, our core purpose is to provide hope, strength and life to more than 3 million people in the state of Nevada and thousands of potential transplant recipients across the country. Our primary functions as an OPO are to coordinate, recover and allocate lifesaving organs and healing tissues for transplantation and research on behalf of our heroic donors. We provide education to hospital staff and community partners on the referral and donation process and provide a strong network of support for the courageous donor families who save lives through the gift of donation. Nevada Donor Network is a member of Donate Life Nevada, a statewide collaboration of agencies committed to motivating Nevada residents to register as organ, eye and tissue donors.

To learn more about the Nevada Donor Network, visit nvdonor.org. To register to be an organ donor, visit registerme.org, or register on the Health App of your iPhone.

In this episode, Wendy welcomes Christina Hernandez, Communications and Engagement Liaison for Nevada Donor Network. August was National Minority Donor Awareness month and Christina gives us information about why increasing donor registration among minority communities is important. Christina tells us about the End the Wait campaign that will provide a facility in Las Vegas for organ transplants. Also discussed is the upcoming Swing For Hope golf tournament fundraiser with the Henderson Silver Knights on October 18.
