What do you know about organ donation?

Cedars-Sinai's Organ Donor Council is conducting a brief 18-question survey of all employees to evaluate individual knowledge, perceptions and beliefs regarding organ donation. Please take a few minutes to participate: www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22FHFS966SR

Your assistance will help researchers design strategies to increase donation, there by benefitting all those waiting for life-saving organs.

Cedars-Sinai understands the increasing need for organs for waiting transplant recipients. More than 900 people await life-saving heart, lung, liver, kidney and pancreas transplants at Cedars Sinai's Comprehensive Transplant Center. Despite the desperate need, there appears to be a lack of awareness and suitable donors.

The council is working with Ali Salim, MD, Darren Malinoski, MD, and Danielle Schulman, MPH, on this effort.
