UNOS is currently accepting nominations from OPOs or transplant centers for the 2017 National Donor Memorial Award for Excellence. This award honors individuals who have gone “above and beyond” in promoting organ donation and transplantation and have received little public recognition. The nominee can be an individual or a couple, such as a donor mother and father, a recipient, a living donor, or a volunteer.
The winner will be honored at the June 5 OPTN/UNOS Board of Directors meeting in Richmond during a reception. The 2017 National Donor Memorial Award for Excellence winner and a guest, along with a representative from the nominating organization, will receive round-trip travel to Richmond and overnight accommodations.
