About AMAT: The Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation (AMAT) supports partners in the transplant field as they save and heal lives in diverse communities.

Multicultural communities play a critical role in America’s transplant system. They save and heal lives as donors of organs, eyes and tissue, need life-saving kidney transplants in disproportionately high numbers, and serve patients and families as healthcare professionals.

Donation and transplant professionals face unique challenges when communicating with grieving families, transplant candidates and patients, hospital staff, and the public with African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian and other multicultural communities.

Through professional development, cultural competency training, and other expertise born of front-line experience, AMAT’s members offer a valuable perspective to help our partners in the transplant field accomplish their life-saving mission in our diverse communities.
