The Chicago Organ Summit was developed in response to the June 2016 White House Organ Summit and former President Barack Obama’s call to action for the nation to increase organ transplantation. The 2018 Chicago Organ Summit featured city and state dignitaries, leaders from Chicago’s transplant centers, hospital systems and Gift of Hope who shared how we will transform Chicago into the transplant hub of the country together.
