Donor Alliance, Rose Medical Center host “Lifecycle of Donation Day”

April 30, 2013

Today, Rose Medical Center, a Health ONE hospital, hosted a “Lifecycle of Donation Day” solely focused on educating its staff about the organ, eye and tissue donation process in celebration of National Donate Life Month. Members of Donor Alliance, Colorado and Wyoming’s non-profit organ procurement organization, partnered with Rose Medical Center to offer this first-of-its-kind forum that included data sharing, case studies and training about the organ and tissue donation process. The Rocky Mountain Lion’s Eye Bank presented data as well as nearly 40 members of Rose staff. The day included a Physician Grand Rounds and lunch presentation by Donor Alliance’s Medical Director Dr. Katherine Fitting and double-lung recipient Judy Kang, as well as a celebratory cake and donor education table.
