Living Donor Advocacy
|If you're a living donor who wants their voice to be heard, you can take the time to fill out the survey on Living Donors Matter's website. All info will be kept confidential unless permission is specifically given.|
- Living Donors Online Message Boards.
Google Alerts will deliver one email per day on articles and sites containing the key words of choice. Many sites or blogs offer rss feeds that can be added to an email program as well.
The country is divided into 11 OPTN regions. Each region has staff and representatives and holds its own meetings and teleconferences, and those regional representatives can be contacted with concerns and suggestions. The national OPTN committees also have meetings, and OPTN regularly posts proposed policies up for public comment, as required by federal law.
Compose Letters to the Editor or contact media personnel.
Most print publications accept letters from readers. If a living donor or transplant-related article or column appears, compose such a letter/email and submit it. It's also acceptable to contact the writer/reporter directly with your thoughts.
Contact State or Federal Lawmakers, as well as Public Policy Organizations.
This one is so big, we gave it its own page.
