Hope Springs Eternal

Rich Umbdenstock, AHA President and CEO

In April, as we move from the gloom of winter to the possibilities of spring, imagine this: a world where there is no waiting list for lifesaving organs. April is National Donate Life Month, when hospitals ramp up their outreach to patients, visitors, members of the community and hospital staff about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation. More than 120,000 men, women and children are waiting for organ transplants in the U.S. right now, and the people of America’s hospitals play a critical role in providing them hope and supporting donor families. Please consider installing a specially designed web banner on your hospital’s intranet to let your staff know we appreciate their support and remind them of the importance of registering as organ, eye and tissue donors. Additional resources from the Health Resources and Services Administration can be found on our website at www.aha.org/organdonation.

Thanks,
Rich
