Patient Education for our Transplant Community
Helen Kuzma, PA-C (Dermatology), along with Heidi Kenyon, RN (Transplant), attended the “Celebration of Life” event this year for organ transplant recipients. “Celebration of Life” is an annual social event sponsored by the Froedtert Foundation and by the Division of Transplant. The event is for organ transplant recipients, their families, and known donors. It includes a picnic-type meal, presentations by recipients, families or donors and it provides an opportunity for transplant recipients to interact with providers outside of clinic visits. Helen and Heidi managed a Dermatology booth providing educational pamphlets to increase awareness of skin cancer in this population and gave out samples of sunscreen.
