LifeGift Takes Lead in Stanford University Donor Heart Study

LifeGift is one of seven organ procurement organizations (OPOs) participating in the Donor Heart Study conducted by Stanford University. Our participation involves important data collection that includes echocardiograms (ECHOs), electrocardiograms (EKGs), laboratory results, angiography results (heart caths) and survey responses from transplant coordinators. 

We began enrolling Southeast donors in early 2015 and by mid-2017 the enrollment was expanded to all LifeGift regions. This move positioned us as the second OPO with the highest average enrollment of donors per month.
