The High School Outreach Initiative

The High School Outreach Initiative aims to raise awareness about organ donation and transplantation throughout high schools in the Toronto area. The project is a joint effort of the University of Toronto Transplant Institute and the Trillium Gift of Life Network (Ontario Health), and includes health professionals from UHN, St. Michael's Hospital (Unity Health Toronto) and Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). The initiative brings together staff, patients, and donor families to share their first-person transplant stories with high school students.

To inquire about high school visits to the Ajmera Transplant Centre, please contact Anna Cocco, Education Coordinator through email or 416 340 4800 ext. 6315.

Now available in Ottawa!

After celebrating its 10-year anniversary in April 2022, the HSOI will now offer presentations to high schools in the Ottawa area, connecting students with a variety of health care professionals and organ donor advocates, and spreading awareness about organ donation to our youth.
