Biannual Update on UNOS Activities
Many changes are happening this year. The biggest change is the implementation of the new Kidney Allocation System. In an effort to keep the AST membership as informed as possible, a section of the website will be dedicated to UNOS updates.
We will post information that comes directly from UNOS as well as AST official responses to proposals out for public comment. Look for this new section to the website in August.
All comments are read by UNOS, and committees respond to ALL input, so hearing from our membership is critical. We ask for careful review by appropriate AST committees and communities of practice.
As the AST representative to the UNOS Board, I serve all of you and am dedicated to bringing AST issues and solutions to the attention of UNOS. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions and I look forward to serving you.
~ Yolanda Becker, AST Representative to the OPTN/UNOS Board of Directors
