CNTRP and partners discuss organ donation on Parliament Hill
Dr. Lori West, Scientific Director of the CNTRP, and David Hartell, CNTRP Executive Director, recently attended a House of Commons’ Standing Committee on Health meeting to discuss the current challenges and opportunities facing organ donation in Canada and provide suggestions on what the Canadian Federal Government can to do improve organ donation in Canada. Representatives from Canadian Blood Services, Trillium Gift of Life Network, BC Transplant, and the Kidney Foundation of Canada also participated as witness and shared their ideas on how we can increase awareness and improve the system in Canada.
This was an excellent opportunity to showcase the impact and importance of our national research network and we are excited to work with the members of the committee and the Federal Government to increase organ donation in Canada.
