School Presentations Available Through Nebraska Organ Recovery

This year, it is Nebraska Organ Recovery’s goal to visit as many schools in Nebraska as possible to help educate our youth about the question they will answer when they sign up for their driver’s license: Will I be an organ and tissue donor? 

Anyone over the age of 16 can register to be a donor, and it’s important to make that decision with as much knowledge as possible. Through educational presentations, we hope to give students the resources they need to make the right decision for themselves. 

Currently, there are about 114,000 people waiting on the transplant list for a lifesaving organ. The wait can last months or even years, and 20 people die each day because they will not receive a transplant in time. 

If you would like to schedule a presentation at your school, please contact the Public Outreach Coordinator at Emily.Niebrugge@nedonation.org. Resources and presentations include interactive activities and explanations of organ and tissue donation. These can be presented in 20- to 60-minute presentations or can be expanded by working with you to assign activities before or after an in-person visit.  

Thank you for the work you do with our youth to promote education in your school and across our state. We look forward to hearing from you!
