Liver Forum Scheduled for April 12, 2010
The Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee is sponsoring a forum to discuss potential options for improving policies for allocation and distribution of deceased donor livers. The forum will be held on April 12 at the Loews Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, GA and if you aren't able to attend in person, it will be broadcast through Live Meeting and teleconference.
Overall forum goals:
Each liver transplant program may send up to two representatives. This will allow representatives from OPOs, professional societies, patient groups, and other members of the public to attend. Due to the hotel meeting room space, attendance is limited to 225 attendees.
Breakfast, lunch, and meeting materials will be provided. Attendees must cover their own travel and hotel expenses, however, the hotel has agreed to a rate of $139/night for conference attendees.
