National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month
Aug. 1, 2022
National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month takes place each August and is a time dedicated to saving and improving lives in diverse communities by advocating for those awaiting a lifesaving transplant and by creating a positive culture for organ, eye and tissue donation.
Throughout the month, LiveOnNY is asking partners to share diverse stories of transplant recipients and heroic donors to show the transformative impact donation has on people and their families. We encourage all to learn more about organ, eye and tissue donation and to have conversations with their loved ones about their wishes. Together we can use our kindness and generosity to improve health outcomes in our communities. For more information visit: LiveOnNY.org/nmdam
