The University of Toledo Medical Center and Life Connection of Ohio will be honoring Donate Life Month by holding a flag-raising ceremony Friday, March 31, at 10 a.m. outside Mulford Library near the main entrance to the hospital on Health Science Campus.

The Donate Life flag will fly throughout the month of April to raise awareness about the need for organ and tissue donors in northwest Ohio and around the country, as well as to encourage more people to register as donors.

The 15-minute ceremony will feature the personal stories of three speakers, including Andrea Jacobs, a retired UTMC employee whose life has been affected by organ donation.
