LEBR staff and volunteers educate the public about the need for and benefits of eye, organ and tissue donation, dispell myths surrounding donation and encourage enrollment in the NY State Donate Life Registry.
We participate in health fairs, community festivals / events and provide speakers for civic, religious, business and school groups throughout our service region.
If you would like LEBR to attend your health fair/event, or present to your group or class, please contact:
Karen Guarino, Communications Director
Students in Grades 7-12 are introduced to the field of eye, organ and tissue donation
in an informative and sensitive manner.
Typically a transplant recipient will accompany the LEBR program speaker
to share their personal transplant experience with students.
