INTERNSHIP AND VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

I had an incredible experience interning at the American Transplant Foundation. The team is kind, welcoming, and genuinely dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of transplant donors/recipients. Helping patients through the Patient Assistance Program was a tremendously rewarding opportunity. I look forward to volunteering at future American Transplant Foundation events. Thank you, Anastasia and Delaney!
