LifeGiving: Transplant Stories Calendar

- a new kind of partnership -

ideastream in collaboration with NetWellness and other multimedia partners presents LifeGiving: Transplant Stories

NetWellness and ideastream are partnering to bring more understanding to the health and medical issues you care about. Launched in 1995, NetWellness is a consumer information website from Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati. ideastream is a non-profit public broadcasting organization including WVIZ/PBS, 90.3 WCPN, WCLV and other educational and public service media. LIfeGiving: Transplant Stories is part of ideastream’s ongoing multiple-media coverage on important health issues presented in collaboration with The Plain Dealer and NetWellness. Through this partnership, you will be able to explore ideastream’s programs as NetWellness puts in-depth information at your fingertips.

At any one time, over 100,000 people across the United States are waiting for life-saving organ transplants and on average each day, 18 of them die. Every 10 minutes another person is placed on the transplant waiting list. There are simply not enough organs to meet the demand. Over half the people waiting for an organ transplant in Ohio are in Northeast Ohio. But the region falls below the state average when it comes to the number of people registered as donors.

ideastream has launched multimedia coverage on radio, television and web focused on organ and tissue donation and transplantation - - stories about people and families that give life and others that receive it. 

Please review the calendar below for dates and times of planned programming. Links provide details about the program, and related information on NetWellness about each topic.
