5th NATIONAL MINORITY TRANSPLANT HALL OF FAME

The National Minority Transplant Hall of Fame was established by National MOTTEP in 1996 to pay tribute to individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions in the area of minority donation and transplantation.  Nominations can be submitted by anyone across the country.  The person who is nominated does not have to be a minority, but must have made significant contributions in the area of minority donation and transplantation.

 

Only completed, detailed forms of nominees will be considered for the final voting ballot.
