About regional meetings

Summer 2021 regional meetings to be virtual

In order to protect the safety of our community and their patients during the wave of Delta infections occurring right now, the OPTN has changed all regional meetings to virtual meetings. Please visit your region’s page for more information about your specific meeting.

Registration and additional meeting details available soon on your region’s webpage.

Watch recording for the Innovations at UNOS webinar that was held Thursday, Sept. 23.

Regional meetings are held twice each year during the winter and summer public comment periods. Regional meetings are an opportunity to influence policy proposals, prepare for upcoming changes, and hear perspectives from the transplant community about improvements to organ allocation.

“It is important to be engaged in the transplant community. I have worked in the field for 24 years, and I am always learning new things and finding ways to incorporate best practices into our work. These meetings help me gain a better understanding of the needs and priorities of our colleagues in transplant.”
