Join us for an education-packed day of learning and inspiration as we build skills focused on supporting diversity, optimizing donation, and embracing innovation.


The morning general session will illustrate the spark of hope donation provides to all communities. Attendees will hear from LifeSource leaders, a courageous donor family and the team involved in the first face transplant in our region.


The afternoon general session speakers will touch off conversations about circumstances in our communities that impact donation. Hear from Helen Nelson of the New England Organ Bank about how the opioid epidemic is impacting donation in their community. Native American storyteller Keith Bear shares the impact of transplantation on his family and community.
