Topics will include your role in the donation process, family dynamics, a physician panel, donation authorization, and donor management (among others). You'll hear from transplant recipients and donor family memebers, and you'll learn about donation pathways (i.e., brain death donation and donation after circulatory death).

Continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be served.
