April is 'National Donate Life Month' and with over 1,200 Connecticut residents awaiting an organ transplant, we are trying to raise awareness of organ donation and transplantation.
On Monday, April 23, 2012 we are going to try and break a 'Guinness Book of World Record' by registering as many new organ donors as we can in one day. The state of Utah hold the current record of registering 765 donors, so Connecticut needs to register 766...and WE CAN DO IT!!
Come see us in the atrium at Yale-New Haven Hospital located at 20 York Street, New Haven, Connecticut between the hours of 8 AM and 4 PM.
If you would like any additional information regarding the event or organ donation and/or transplantation, please contact M. Lynne McHale, RN, CNII, CCTC at 203-688-5627 or via e-mail at Lynne.McHale@YNHH.ORG.
Be a hero and register to become an organ donor!!
Hope to see you then!
