"The way transplantation is practiced in the US today was developed primarily by AFDT."
John McDonald, MD, Louisiana State University Medical Center

"AFDT meetings for over 25 years have provided the latest and most complete information needed to advance transplant programs. They have provided an informal communication and collaboration network not provided by any other venue."
Francis H. Wright, Jr., MD, Methodist Specialty and Transplant Center

"For over 25 years, AFDT has provided education for all transplant disciplines in a setting that encourages the multidisplinary team discussion."
Helen Spicer, RN, Virginia Transplant Center, Henrico Doctors' Hospital

"AFDT was the first to organize a Donor Advocate Symposia and insurance program for living kidney donors."
Gazi B. Zibari, MD, Louisiana State University Medical Center
