Secondary School Education about Donation and Transplantation
Our Transplant Program has been a “partner in education” with secondary schools throughout Southwestern Ontario for many years. In the past, we offered a comprehensive co-op program for students. We continue to provide some educational sessions in the classroom and at school assemblies. Along with transplant professionals, transplant recipients and donor families also participate in these outreach initiatives.
Two decades ago our transplant staff worked with education specialists to develop a unit of study about donation and transplantation for Grade 11 health students. This educational program – One Life…Many Gifts – was developed because our co-op students and student surveys identified the need for a formal educational experience that answered the many questions of these young adults.
