For 40 years, Dr. Callender has been a leader in transplantation and in outreach about the need for donation and transplantation to the Black community.

“We were thrilled to see that the African American population has now become the group with the highest organ donor per million rate - and that minorities now say yes to donation at a greater than 31% rate; a doubling of 15% from previous decades. The shortage of donors is the #1 problem in transplantation today and all communities must work together in our efforts to decrease the 121,000 waiting, over 50% of whom are minority patients."
