Living Donor Advocate

The independent living donor advocate's (ILDA) primary focus is to assist potential living donors to understand the non-medical problems, challenges, and changes that donation brings as well as an evaluation of the donor's emotional, social, support, and financial resources. The donor advocate is employed specifically to represent and advise the donor; protect and promote the donor's interests; and ensure that donor's decision is informed and free from coercion. The donor advocate provides counseling and emotional support to donors and families as they proceed through the donation process.
