Public Education

Staff and volunteers educate the public about the need for and benefits of eye, organ and tissue donation, dispel 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 us to attend your health fair/event, or present to your group or class, please contact:
