Close to Home: Understanding Organ Donation with Susan Angel Miller

October 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Admission is FREE!!!

Close to Home”—a companion series to the popular “Great Decisions” foreign policy presentations—is a domestic issues series that explores a range of topics that have the potential to impact the daily lives of people within our community. One such matter that people find it extremely difficult to openly discuss is organ donation. However, while uncomfortable at first, it’s important to remember that organ donation literally provides the gift of life. Milwaukee-based Susan Angel Miller—a career volunteer who has devoted her skills to nonprofit strategic planning, community outreach, and mentoring projects to a number of organizations including the Wisconsin Donor Network and Student Advocates for Organ Donation—brings her panel discussion “”Understanding Organ Donation” to the Balkansky Community Room of Manitowoc Public Library on Thursday, October 24 at 6 PM. Panel members will include a transplant nurse, and organ procurement coordinator, Susan herself, and, hopefully, a donor recipient. Not an easy discussion to start, but most definitely a necessary one. Another Must-See program at MPL! Admission is FREE!!!
