OVERVIEW
Baylor Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute and the Camenae Group invite you to attend the Sixth Annual Donor Advocate Symposium.  The symposium will be held Friday, November 10, 2017 at the Magnolia Hotel Dallas DOWNTOWN. 
Living donor transplantation is a key part of restoring health in patients with end-stage kidney or liver disease. Nurses, clinicians, clergy and social workers play a pivotal role in communicating the living donor option to patients, families, friends and other potential living donors. They typically face a myriad of questions regarding cost, psychosocial issues, ethical issues, long-term donor health, paired donation, transplant outcomes, and the role of the media. 

TARGET AUDIENCE and SCOPE OF PRACTICE
