Sydney University Surgical Society will be holding a few events to promote organ and tissue donation awareness during DonateLife Week 2018.
More than 1,400 Australians are currently waitlisted for a transplant. 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 your donation wishes with your loved ones.
How you can get involved:
Thursday July 27: DonateLife Transplant Symposium
Friday, August 3: Free BBQ lunch on Eastern Avenue
Tuesday July 31 – Friday August 3: Information Stall on Eastern Avenue – drop by for a quick chat with us if you are interested to find out more about organ donation, enjoy some free popcorn and pick up free merchandise!
And ‘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.
