Aug. 20 UNOS COVID-19 update: Committee meetings virtual through October

OPTN committee meetings to be held virtually through Oct. 31

As UNOS continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19, we have now determined that all OPTN committee meetings scheduled through Oct. 31 will be held virtually. The health and safety of meeting participants and those they care for is our highest priority. A list of all scheduled meetings will be updated on the calendar of events on the OPTN website to reflect this change, and UNOS will contact all committee members with additional details on how to participate virtually. For questions and requests, please e-mail [email protected].
