This observance brings heightened awareness to donation and transplantation in multicultural communities with a primary focus on African American, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, and Native American communities.
NMDAM is a collaborative action of the National Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation Multicultural Action Group (NMAG) that aims to create a positive culture for organ, eye, and tissue donation to save and improve the quality of life of diverse communities.
During NMDAM, national organ donation organizations bring increased awareness to the need for more organ, eye, and tissue donors within multicultural communities, provide donation education, inspire donor registration, and promote healthy living and disease prevention to reduce the need for transplantation. NMDAM is a critical effort to drive the positive messages that are needed for minority communities to make the decision for organ, eye, and tissue donation.
Information and resources to help share this important message with your community can be found on the National Multicultural Action Group website.
