La Semana Nacional para la Concientización de la Donación en los Grupos Minoritarios, que se celebra del 1ro de agosto al 7 de agosto de cada año, es una recordación a escala nacional para aumentar la concientización de la necesidad apremiante de donantes y trasplantes dentro de la comunidad multicultural. Su propósito es educar al público acerca de los hechos y el proceso de cómo dirigir su decisión hacia Donate Life North Carolina. Aproximadamente el 55 por ciento de quienes hacen parte de la lista nacional de espera corresponde a minorías.
Please enjoy our Summer 2013 Donate Life NC newsletter. In this quarter's issue, we feature stories from Courtney, an 18-year-old heart transplant recipient as well as Darlene, a living kidney donor who participated in a six-person kidney exchange at Vidant Health (her daughter was one of the three recipients). Additionally, we feature the first half of our annual DMV Awards presentations, information on living donation, a recap of our 2nd annual Legislative Day, and more: Donate Life NC Summer 2013 Newsletter.
