6th Annual Koontz-Callender-Drew Symposium, hosted by Gift of Life MOTTEP

"Transplantation Disparities: Celebrating 25 Years of Saving Lives"

The symposium is designed to promote the exchange of ideas on health care disparities and its impact on organ and tissue donation.  National and local experts highlight ways to engage physicians, health professionals and community leaders to become champions in saving lives.  Presenters examine the roles and responsibility of professional and public education to encourage strategies to increase the number organs available for transplantation and promote healthier communities.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify the diversity, cultural, and linguistic competence of health services providers.
  • Develop a better understanding of how popular media may influence potential non-directed donors.
  • Recognize how an increase in insured patients with earlier access to transplantation has the potential to further strain the already limited organ supply.

Keynote Speaker:  Dr. Clive O. Callender, Founder, National MOTTEP
