Bollywood star has pledged to donate all her organs. As the Goodwill Ambassador of Unicef, she has also decided to use her celebrity status to promote organ donation.
When Priyanka Chopra’s father was treated for liver illness at the University of Rochester Medical Center(URMC), she learnt more about the institution’s Solid Organ Transplant Programs.
The URMC is organising the 20th anniversary celebration of its Liver Transplant Program on October 5 in New York and the organisers have invited Priyanka to be deliver the keynote address.
The actress will share the dais with University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Thomas Starzl, M.D., Ph.D., who performed the first human liver transplant at the University of Colorado in 1963.
The URMC programme will not only raise awareness about the need for organ donation, but also raise funds for patient care, advocacy, research and education.
