CHA Supports Statewide Campaign for Living Kidney Donors

Donate Life California, the state-authorized organ and tissue registry for deceased donors, has launched a new information and referral service specific to living kidney donations. CHA has long been a supporter of the Donate Life California registry and encourages members to learn more about the new web portal for kidney donors, called Living Donation California. In California, more than 17,000 people are on the kidney transplant waiting list, but last year just over 2,000 Californians received kidney transplants.

The new website explains how kidney donation works, includes guidance to help donors make an informed decision, and lists California transplant centers – all of which are CHA members.
