Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Highlighting Partners Through Recognition Programs

The gift of sight is a result of teamwork and collaboration. Eye banks work closely with OPOs, hospitals, funeral homes, Medical Examiners and Coroners, hospices and other entities to facilitate cornea donation to provide tissue for sight restoring transplants. Honoring partners through recognition programs is a way to thank them for their role in cornea donation and transplantation and can lead to stronger relationships with those individuals or entities. Representatives from various organizations will discuss the recognition and awards programs that their organizations have created to highlight and honor their donation partners and will provide tips for establishing a program at one’s organization. Learn more about partner recognition programs and how they can provide recognition to those who go above and beyond to facilitate donation.  


For one fee of $50 (EBAA Member) or $150 (Non-Member), the entire organization may attend the webinar. After registration, a confirmation email will be sent with a discount code. The contact person who purchased the session should send the discount code to other staff members who may wish to attend the session. The discount code will allow staff to attend remotely for free. 

Note: if an organization has multiple locations, additional registrations must be purchased for each location.

CEU Information

A new CEU process has been implemented. If an individual views the session through their own eyeLEARN account, they simply need to complete the survey on their account to claim credit for the session. If a group of people view the session together in a conference room, then each person should complete the survey listed in the confirmation email to claim CEU credit. 

Important: Whether through eyeLEARN or the survey in the confirmation email, each attendee must complete their own survey to claim credit for the session.
