In 2001, HHS launched the Gift of Life Donation Initiative. One of the strategies in this initiative is the Workplace Partnership for Life, a collaboration where companies and employee groups of all sizes pledge to make information on donation available to employees. Over the years, several major national corporations have become registered members of the Workplace Partnership such as Bank of America, MetLife, Baxter Healthcare and Verizon. Currently, there are well over 12,000 partners enrolled.
Workplace Partners in Connecticut are local businesses and organizations that offer their employees, clients and patrons information to help make the personal decision of becoming an organ and tissue donors and how to register as donors in the state of Connecticut. How to Participate:
