Be The One: 2014 Transplant and Organ Donation Calendar

Transplant at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics is one of the world's foremost organ transplant programs, and UW Organ and Tissue Donation is recognized as one of the nation's leading organ and tissue donation programs.
 
We hope you are inspired by the photos and stories in this calendar. All of these people are, in their own unique and wonderful way, actively promoting donation and transplantation. We gratefully acknowledge their commitment to the mission and thank them for sharing their time and energy. We are fortunate to say that there are thousands more like them. They include our tireless volunteers, expert clinical partners from hospitals and clinics across the nation, compassionate nurses and committed team members whose voices create endless ripples of hope. You are all making a difference, every day.
