UAMS Pharmacy Students Getting the Word out about Organ Donation

Signing up to be an organ donor is one of the most generous things you can do — especially when you consider that a single donor can potentially save eight lives. That’s eight people who won’t have to spend agonizing months or years on the transplant waiting list, who will get a second chance, because you made the selfless decision to be a donor.

So far UAMS College of Pharmacy has presented organ donation awareness information and have taken organ donation pledges from Central High School students at their annual Health Fair, Central Arkansas Christian students at their high school, Van Buren High School Students, and Arkansas Tech College Students in Russellville.

Also UAMS students and employees at the “Get Swabbed” bone marrow donation registration drive and have been a part of the legislative session.
