We Can Save Lives Together

Since 2017, the state of Ohio has required high school health curriculums to include organ, eye and tissue donation education. We've made it as easy as possible for you to help students prepare to make an informed decision about registration.

All you need to do to get started is choose one of these two options:

Schedule a donation expert to teach for you, sharing information directly from Donate Life Ohio with all of your health students.


Request free materials from Donate Life Ohio designed specifically to help you teach the lesson yourself.
