Donation and Transplantation
in Education (DATE)
Watch for dates for the 2021 symposium.
Donate Life Connecticut and New Haven Public Schools have formed a partnership to raise awareness about the lifesaving benefits of organ donation and transplantation, and to commit to educating our youth about healthy living to prevent end organ disease.
The partnership has hosted two educational symposiums with a variety of guest speakers and idea exchanges. Transplant recipients, living organ donors, deceased donor family members, members of Donate Life Connecticut, leaders from New Haven Public Schools, representatives from New England Donor Services, The NAACP, various disease advocacy groups, and local health care organizations have all participated in this important endeavor. The event dispels rumors about donation, increases health awareness, and inspires students to further pursue STEM education and STEM careers.
Please watch for the date for the 2021 symposium to be announced.
