Colorful Pinwheel Garden Highlights Donate Life Month at UVA Health

Pinwheel garden at UVA Health's West Complex

To celebrate Donate Life Month in April and the gift of life provided by organ donation and transplantation, the UVA Health Transplant Center has installed approximately 1,300 colorful pinwheels outside UVA Health’s West Complex.

Virginia’s only comprehensive transplant center, the UVA Health Transplant Center has performed more than 7,000 organ transplants since its founding more than 50 years ago. During Donate Life Month this year, UVA Health’s transplant team is emphasizing the importance of living kidney and living liver donations to help the more than 100,000 people on waiting lists for transplants across the United States.

Anyone interested in learning more about how to become a living kidney or living liver donor can visit UVA Health’s living organ donation page.

The pinwheel garden will be on display through May 1.
