WHAT: The UPMC Liver Transplant Program will host an online Living-Donor Liver Transplant Town Hall to help educate patients with liver disease about living donation and how to find a living donor using the UPMC Living Donor Champion Program


WHY: If you have been diagnosed with liver disease, a liver transplant may be a future treatment option for you. With more than 14,000 people on the waiting list, identifying a suitable living donor can help you receive a transplant sooner – getting you back to enjoying life with your family and loved ones.
