MOHAN Foundation in collaboration with the Network and Alliance of Transplant Coordinators (NATCO) organized an Advanced Transplant Coordinators’ Workshop on the 21st and 22nd June 2019 at Hotel Abu Sarovar Portico in Chennai.
Around 50 transplant coordinators and healthcare professionals from across the country participated in the workshop. Faculty was drawn from India as well as from overseas. Lectures were delivered via Skype by those who were unable to travel to the venue.
Shreya Siddanagowder, Asia's first upper arm double hand transplant recipient was the keynote speaker.
Shreya lost both her hands in a meaningless road accident in 2016 and finally underwent hand transplant a year later (thanks to the generosity of the parents of a young boy). One can tell after interacting with her, that she is determined to live life to the fullest and spread awareness on hand transplantation along with her amazing parents who have been her constant support through her entire journey so far.
