Request Living Kidney Donation Educational Materials
Interested in Being a Donor?
We are pleased to provide our new living kidney donation patient and community education materials in our printed format. They will be helpful to physicians and clinicians, dialysis center staff members, patients seeking a kidney donor, people who are considering becoming a living donor and anyone who wants to champion living kidney donation.
Remember these important facts:
- Receiving a living donor transplant is a patient’s best option for a successful outcome
- A living donor does not have to match the recipient. The UW Health Transplant Program offers six donation options and you can learn more about the options at uwhealth.org/livingdonor
- Anyone who is ready to apply to be considered for living donation can complete our form at uwhealth.org/CanIBeADonor
