As of the 2018-2019 school year, NWCTA HOSA will be partnering with the NDN (Nevada Donor Network) to promote organ donation. Initiated by our chapter's president, Noah Ahmed, our members will be volunteering with NDN at health-related events to promote registration for organ donation. The hope of this is to educate Nevadans all about donating their organs and to dispel any myths that may be holding them back from registering.

There are over 100,000 people waiting for organs in the U.S., so working with NDN is something we are very passionate about. Many of the volunteers at NDN are organ recipients/donors or family of organ recipients/donors. It is an amazing opportunity to be able to work with and get to know such amazing people with incredible stories.
Throughout the year out members will volunteer to help NDN with their mission and aid in saving/ improving the lives of those in need or organs and/or tissue. With this partnership we hope to build up both NDN and NWCTA HOSA as organizations.
