Living Donation Week 2021 – Pitch Competition: Deadline Sept. 1
Pitch your idea for innovation in living donation care, research and education: $75,000 available!
This year is all about sharing your story, no matter how you’re connected to the living donation and transplantation community. Living Donation Week 2021 (#LDW2021) will feature a Celebration Event, a Pitch Competition with 3 grants of $25,000 each, educational webinars for health professionals and those exploring living donor, and a national public awareness campaign profiling stories of living donation from across the country. Whether you’re a living donor, recipient, caregiver, healthcare practitioner, or transplant advocate – there’s a little something for everyone!
The Ajmera Transplant Centre and the Canadian Society of Transplantation (CST) have partnered on a Canada-wide call for submissions for a Dragons’ Den-style Pitch Competition to improve living donation care, research and education. The top 3 entries will receive $25K each. Submissions are open to members of the Canadian Society of Transplantation. Non-members such as fellows, trainees and others working or studying in a related field may participate if sponsored by a CST member in good standing.
The deadline is September 1, 2021. For more information visit the website here.
