Join us online for Living Donation Week 2020! 

It is our pleasure to invite you to Living Donation Week 2020 – a weeklong, online event to highlight the important work led by UHN to improve access and equity in living organ donation, and to celebrate our incredible living donors and transplant recipients.  

From September 14 to 18, join us for a series of educational and interactive webinars in the morning, over lunch and in the afternoon. All sessions are free. Given the level of living donation expertise and transplant innovation at UHN, our program is extensive. To save you some time, we’ve divided the session into categories below. You can also view the full program here.
