Sydney University Surgical Society is again running an information stall to promote organ and tissue donation awareness during DonateLife Week 2016.

Today, more than 1,500 Australians on the waiting list to receive transplants. One day, you could transform the lives of 10 or more people by becoming a donor. If you’ve decided about becoming a donor, you need to register your decision on the Australian Organ Donor Register and most importantly, discuss it with your loved ones.

You can get involved by doing any of the following:

  • Visit the SUSS DonateLife Week information stall on Eastern Avenue, University of Sydney, on Tuesday, August 2 and Thursday, August 4 and pick up some free merchandise and fill in a form to register your decision with the Australian Organ Donor Register.
  • Stay tuned for details of our Transplant Symposium in early September – we have confirmed an intensive care specialist and a transplant surgeon to speak, plus more to come!
  • Like the DonateLife at Sydney University Facebook page to stay updated on the week’s events and for insights into the medicine, science, and personal aspects of organ donation.

Remember – you can help end the wait for people who need a life-saving or life-transforming transplant!
