Our goal at Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network (FLDRN) is to keep you, a healthcare professional, up to date about organ, eye and tissue donation, and transplantation. Here are highlights from recent Partners e-newsletters.
- Partners Newsletter - Fall 2015
As we close out the year 2015, we continue our Best Practices series involving the Donor Referral Hotline, looking at "how" it relates to the differences between organ, eye and tissue donation and the agencies who respond to them. We review a symposium presentation that explains how to support donor families who choose LIFE amidst loss. And we share the heart transplant story of News 8/WROC Rochester meteorologist, Scott Hetsko.

This edition includes a note of thanks for your efforts to promote organ donation during National Donate Life Month; two donor families share why they are grateful to hospital staff; we explain who should talk to families about donation, and how the donor 1-800-hotline operates; and you meet transplant surgeon Dr. Vaughn Whittaker, who wrote a poem in praise of organ donation and transplantation.
