Gift of Life Organ Donation and Transplantation Summit

Gift of Life Donor Program’s Organ Donation and Transplantation Summit is a regional collaboration with healthcare professionals aimed at improving outcomes. As Gift of Life continues to build its 50-year legacy of service to the community, thank you for your staunch support and collaboration.  We can’t save lives without you.

Please join us on Thursday, May 2, 2024 from 12 noon – 5PM for our Organ Donation and Transplantation Summit at Alloy King of Prussia – a DoubleTree by Hilton. We will provide free CMEs/CEUs. Woven throughout the day, there will be opportunities for you to hear from patients and families whose lives have been transformed because of your compassionate care.  We will also gather for a networking reception immediately following the Summit.  We are excited to bring this offering to you and even more looking forward to connecting in person and enjoying our time together at the planned reception!
