Dear Primary Care Physician,

‘Doctors for Donation’ is an initiative that was sponsored by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in collaboration with the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN).

Various studies have shown that most people living in America would like to learn more about organ donation through their primary care physician (PCP) because they feel that the PCP is a trusted source of medical information and are most comfortable to talk to about these topics for themselves and their family.

The initial goal is to encourage a positive patient-doctor dialogue about donation, followed by a greater willingness of the general public to sign up as organ donors.

Please contact Life Alliance Organ Recovery Organization for more information or send an email to address below.

Please get involved.

For more information on “Doctors for Organ Donation,” send an e-mail to Nancy Carothers, public health analyst at HRSA’s Division of Transplantation, ncarothers@hrsa.gov,
