In honor of National Donor Day, I had the opportunity to interview a Health Activist who started an amazing health community dedicated to the conversation of organ transplant. Nelson Freytes created Transplant Cafe to offer a place for people who are in the unique position and to “Increasing transplant awareness through personal profiles, interactive tools, friendships, blogs, discussions, groups, events & networking!” Having benefited from a transplant himself, Nelson was brought into the world of Health Activism via his love of technology. Now, nearly 3,000 members enjoy the community of Transplant Cafe. Something unique I really loved about the community was on the Just 4 Fun page: a really cool game called Pill Design Game where members create little portraits out of their pills. I encourage you to learn more about organ donation and consider educating your community members about this extremely important yet under-discussed health world of organ donation.
