Independent Living Donor Advocate

The Transplant Institute has an Independent Living Donor Advocate who meets with potential living donors. The Advocate functions independently and is not otherwise involved in Transplant Institute activities. The Advocate's primary responsibilities are to represent and advise the potential donor, to protect and promote the interests of the potential donor, and to ensure that the donor's decision is informed and free from coercion. The Advocate is available to discuss any questions, concerns, or issues that may arise at any point throughout the donor's experience.

Julia Dunbar is the Independent Living Donor Advocate at the Transplant Institute.
