Learn about Donate Life Month and a Pharmacists' (Dr. Tyler Tinkham's)role in Solid Organ Transplants (SOT)as special co-host Mike LaPorte and I interview Patricia Dean. Patricia is a 2-time liver transplant recipient at VCUHealth and has made it her mission to clear the transplant waiting list after her life-saving surgery. To do this, she became the Community Education Coordinator at LifeNet Health, an organization providing organ, eye and tissue donation education throughout the community. Their goal is to drive every Virginian to the registry, and OVERxDOSE is more than happy to help them complete their mission by covering some of the myths surrounding organ donation. But, this isn't possible without YOU! In honor of Donate Life Month, and with support from the Theta Chapter of Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity at VCU School of Pharmacy, we're trying to make Paticria's dream a reality.
