Why It Matters

Why It Matters

For many health care providers, the donors in our program are their first patients. Without the generosity of our donors it would be impossible to provide the highest quality of health education. These sessions allow learners to gain confidence, practice new techniques, and make mistakes in a safe and controlled setting. As such, all donors are treated just as any other patient would expect to be treated in a clinical setting.
