Public Health Emergency Set to End on May 11, 2023 

In January, the White House announced the national emergency and public health emergency (PHE) would end on May 11, 2023. However, on March 29, 2023, Congress passed a resolution to end the national emergency immediately. President Biden signed the resolution into law on April 10, 2023, officially ending the national emergency. The resolution did not affect the end of the PHE, which is still set to end on May 11, 2023.  

April Is National Donate Life Month 

National Donate Life Month was established in 2003 by Donate Life America and its partnering organizations. It aims to raise awareness about the need for and importance of organ, eye, and tissue donation. It also highlights the importance of registering to be a donor, honors deceased and living donors, and celebrates the lives that donors have saved.  

If transplant is a treatment option your doctor has mentioned, or if you are being considered for a transplant, the QCARE Transplant Care Program provides special attention and team care throughout each step of the organ transplant process.
