The American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) has created three 30 minute educational videos for potential kidney or liver donors and recipients. The videos feature either an actual recipient or donor who shares their experience for those considering donation or transplantation as treatment for kidney or liver disease as well as what to expect from each member of the transplant team.
These specialized videos are meant to be utilized as a first step in educating the potential donor and recipient before the initial clinic visit. Transplant teams are encouraged to send candidates the video to watch with family members (and friends), before the visit so they can subsequently come to the appointment with any remaining questions.
If you are considering organ donation, NLDAC may be able to lessen the burden of travel expenses. View the NLDAC Eligibility Screening Tool for NLDAC household income requirements.
To learn more about the application process, read the NLDAC brochure "How to Apply" in English or Spanish.
Join NLDAC in its mission to reduce financial disincentives to living donation. Please print a NLDAC poster and place it in your kidney transplant clinic or your local dialysis clinic. If you would like us to mail you posters or brochures, please complete this request form. If you would like to learn about the application process, click on the link below.
