Hello readers and welcome aboard. We are very excited to launch our new Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA) website to the public. This new website will be used to help educate the public about KODA and our very important mission. KODA's mission which is to provide organ and tissues to those in need and to maintain a profound respect for those who gave. KODA is dedicated to saving lives through organ and tissue donation and transplantation. KODA was formed to establish a statewide educational and procurement network. KODA is an independent, non-profit organ and tissue procurement agency. KODA was founded in 1987 (Originated as a combination of existing organ and tissue procurement programs at the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville) and we serve 114 counties in Kentucky, 4 counties in southern Indiana and 2 counties in western West Virginia. (Six northern Kentucky counties are served by LifeCenter in Cincinnati). Keep checking our blog to learn more about organ and tissue donation, events, volunteering, and charitable giving. We can't wait to get started on some great posts.
