Lisa Matthias, who serves as the director of kidney transplant at HCA Henrico Doctors’ Hospital in Richmond, Virginia, describes volunteering on a committee as an incredible opportunity to partner with United Network for Organ Sharing in the development of transplant policy. “Volunteering has given me a front line view of policy formation and insight into what affects my patients here at the transplant program,” she said.
Transplant community volunteers are on the same team, working toward a common goal of increasing the number of transplants and saving more lives.
