Our goal is to increase research and awareness of the disparities and to decrease barriers in minority transplantation with access to resources and tools that will empower minorities for better health outcomes.
113,600 people are in need of a lifesaving solid organ as of June 2019. The majority have been diagnosed with kidney disease and liver disease. Getting an organ transplant is often accompanied by several challenges, many of which can be attributed to factors like the state of an individual's living circumstances, their economic status and where they were born.
As a result, many racial and ethnic minorities, such as African Americans, Latin individuals and Native Americans must unjustly wait longer for a much-needed new organ – or never receive one at all because of these barriers to care. Research shows that these disparities are avoidable, especially with changes at the institutional level. Our goal is to increase research and community awareness of the disparities and decrease barriers in minority transplantation with access to resources and tools to empower the minority community for better health outcomes.
Our Mission is to Reduce Barriers in Minority Organ Donation and Transplantation
Many are the needs of transplant recipients not just financially but physically and emotionally. Our mission is not only to educate, empower and equip individuals minority communities with resources but to become registered organ donors but to engage in lifestyle choices that promote healthy outcomes.
