Joan Green and Dr. Frank Markel’s to Present “One Life...Many Gifts” at Marymount Academy

October 9, 2008 - "One Life…Many Gifts” is a senior secondary school pilot curriculum program aimed at raising the level of understanding about organ and tissue donation in secondary school classrooms across the province.

Dr. Frank Markel, President and CEO of Trillium Gift of Life Network and Joan Green, Education Consultant and Program Advisor will present “One Life…Many Gifts” to Sudbury Catholic District School Board trustees, senior administration, elementary and secondary school principals, school chaplains and the entire CEC office staff.

“It is vital to begin the conversation around organ and tissue donation with students in our high schools,” said Markel. “Our hope is that every student will start talking about the importance of organ and tissue donation and will talk to their loved ones about their wishes.”

This curriculum will be delivered in approximately 240 schools in 20 school boards across Ontario in the 2008/09 academic year, including the Sudbury Catholic District School Board.

“The focus of the presentation is not the science of transplants, but how to help individuals become civically engaged enough to want to become their brother's keeper," said veteran educator Green.

Immediately following the presentation, Mrs. Green will be meeting with the Board’s secondary principals with regard to Education, Quality, and Accountability Office (EQAO) data and the importance of this data analysis at the secondary level.
