Transplant Challenge a Finalist for Health Care Heroes awards!
We are thrilled to announce that the Transplant Challenge has been selected as a finalist for the Memphis Business Journal's 2009 Health Care Heroes awards! We've been nominated for the category of Community Outreach, and the winners will be announced during a dinner on Sept. 1.
NFT launched the Transplant Challenge in April 2009 to raise awareness about the critical shortage of organ donors and to encourage individuals to register with their state donor registry. Through community events, social media, printed materials and word of mouth, NFT has reached more than 60,000 individuals with our message about this important health issue.
We are currently planning a campus challenge for the fall, where we will reach out to college students in and around the Memphis area.
Are you an organ donor? Accept the Transplant Challenge today!
