214: "The Organ Transplant Experience"

This program, held Wednesday, October 8 in the new Jamrich Hall, was very successful!

"I am still on a high from my visit to Marquette. Thank you all so very much for supporting “The Transplant Experience” presentation last Wednesday night with your ideas, planning, coordination, attendance, promotion, support, and for making yourselves available to meet Racheal and her family the next day at breakfast and in the ICU when she visited. For those who were not able to get involved or be present, Racheal is organ donor Sanaz Nezami’s double lung recipient." ~ Wendy J. Murdak, Hospital Development Specialist, UWHealth
