Hospitals work with their donation organizations and hospital associations. DoT offers support by hosting coaching and best practices webinars, providing turnkey communications pieces and a list of recommended activities, and by recognizing partners for their participation. Since 2011, the campaign has added nearly 400,000 donor enrollments to state registries.

Currently, 206 transplant centers are enrolled. Help us get to the goal of 100% participation—please check and make sure your center gets involved!
