From Our Blog:
April is National Donate Life Month, and this year we’re bringing back the “Let life bloom” campaign to educate hospital communities about the importance of organ, eye, and tissue donation and provide an opportunity for you to show your support of these life-saving gifts.
Hospitals, OPOs and other organizations across the nation will be using registration drives, social media campaigns, and other events to encourage people to register as donors in April and throughout the year.
LifeSource Partner Challenge
We have a fun and competitive region-wide challenge for hospitals to participate in this year. Using this scorecard as your guide, plan your organization’s campaign activities and watch your points grow. The challenge runs March 15 – April 30, 2014 and you can add activities from three additional 30-day periods dating back to June 2013. The points you accumulate will determine your level of recognition in the national WPFL campaign, and your standing in the LifeSource region-wide competition.
National Healthcare Decisions Day exists to inspire, educate & empower the public & providers about the importance of advance care planning. It’s an initiative to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding healthcare and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.
