On October 20, 2011, Sanford-Brown Pittsburgh Anesthesia Technology students along with members of CORE hosted organ donation awareness tables at Monroeville Mall and at the Sanford-Brown Health Fair on campus handing out literature and talking with members of the community about organ donation. They signed up 15 organ donors. Every organ donor can save 8 lives, therefore 120 lives may be saved from this effort!

The event was part of Sanford-Brown’s second annual Give Back Week.
