April is National Donate Life Month, commemorating those who have received or continue to wait for lifesaving transplants as well as the donors who save and heal lives. More than 123,000 U.S. patients are awaiting organ transplants to save their lives. Hospitals not only facilitate the medical procedures, but are a trusted source of information about donation and state donor registries. In a column for AHA News, AHA Chairman Jonathan Perlin, M.D., explains why AHA is a national partner in Donate Life Month.
