Mid-America Transplant invites you and your students to experience our classroom education program. We will provide an engaging learning event designed to spark your students' interest in the field of organ and tissue donation.

What to Expect

Our curriculum meets Missouri and Illinois state standards in health and sciences. It is designed for students in grades 9-12. The objectives of the education program are to:

  • Provide students with the opportunity to learn about organ and tissue donation and transplantation.
  • Allow students the opportunity to use critical thinking while addressing myths and misconceptions surrounding donation and transplantation.
  • Allow students the opportunity to explore medical careers related to donation and transplantation.
  • Provide supplemental lessons for health sciences.

Program Features

  • 24/7 Online Resources: Photos, videos, FAQs, and other resources are available on the website to use at any time.
  • 60-minute Live Presentation: Teachers can schedule a live presentation with a Mid-America Transplant educator at a time that works for their classes.
  • Personal Testimonies: Students and teachers can read and/or listen to personal stories from recipients and/or donor families.

We want to create an opportunity for you and your students to learn about organ and tissue donation in a way that best suits your needs.  Our donation educators can:

  • Provide information that can be distributed at your convenience.
  • Schedule a live classroom session that can be a full presentation, Q&A session, or customized to fit the teacher’s request.
  • Or incorporate both to fit the lesson plan(s).
