UNOS invites OPOs and transplant centers to submit nominations for the tenth National Donor Memorial Award for Excellence, which recognizes an unsung hero (an individual or a couple). Nominees often are a donor parent, recipient, living donor or volunteer–anyone who has gone “above and beyond” to promote organ donation and transplantation, with little public recognition.
Each organization is limited to one entry. Submit your entry to Michelle Tolliver in UNOS’ Marketing and Public Relations department by Tuesday, March 19. You can renominate past candidates who were not selected as winners.
.UNOS will present the 2019 award at an evening reception during the June 10, meeting of the OPTN/UNOS Board of Directors in Richmond, VA.
The award winner and a guest, along with a representative from the nominating organization, will receive round-trip travel to Richmond and overnight accommodations. We’ll notify the OPO or transplant center that submits the winning nomination by the end of April. Every nominating OPO/transplant center will receive a Certificate of Nomination and a small gift for its nominee, recognizing his or her outstanding contributions to organ donation and transplantation.
For more information, call Michelle Tolliver at (804) 782-4865 or email her.
