WYDOT honored for state's organ & tissue donor designation rate

On May 14th, representatives from the Wyoming Department of Transportation received a gold medal from Donate Life America in recognition of Wyoming’s high percentage of residents who have generously pledged to be organ, eye and tissue donors through the state’s donor registry.  The award was presented by Donor Alliance, the federally-designated, non-profit organ procurement organization serving most of Wyoming. The state was one of only 10 to receive the distinction.
