Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center raises flag to increase awareness during National Donate Life Month

Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center raised a Donate Life flag to help increase awareness during National Donate Life Month. National Donate Life Month was instituted by Donate Life America and its partnering organizations in 2003. Celebrated in April each year, National Donate Life Month features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.
