Activating Students in your Service Area


What is SODA: Student Organ Donation Advocates? 

Students represent a promising segment of the population to become educated about the critical need for organ donation and to register as organ donors. SODA campus chapters mobilize organ donation ambassadors and their peers, instill a passion for organ donation that can last a lifetime, and fulfill an unmet need for student-focused organ donation education and registration efforts across the United States.

How do SODA and OPOs work together?
