The Temple University School of Pharmacy student chapter of Pennsylvania Society of Health-System Pharmacists (PSHP) recently held an Organ Donation Awareness event at Temple University Hospital. In honor of April as Organ Donation Awareness Month, PSHP members and faculty advisors, with support and materials from the Gift of Life Donor Program, spent a few hours spreading awareness of the benefits of being an organ donor, dispelling myths about organ donation and interacting with patients, families and hospital employees regarding organ donation. In addition to providing information, students used laptops and iPads to access PennDOT's online organ donation registry to register people who wished to become donors.
