UPMC and CORE ‘Crossing Guards’ Stop Pedestrian Traffic for Organ Donation Awareness
WHY: Every day, about 21 people in the United States die while waiting for an organ transplant. For people whose organs are failing because of disease or injury, donated organs and tissue may offer the gift of sight, freedom from machines, or even life itself.
WHO: Past transplant patients, UPMC staff volunteers and representatives from CORE.
