Posted: Updated:

Dr. Steven Potter, ETMC Tyler kidney transplant surgeon and program director, has been named secretary-treasurer for the Texas Transplantation Society for a three-year term.

The Texas Transplantation Society is a professional association founded in 1987 to facilitate transplantation within the state. The mission is to advance transplantation and organ donation in Texas through education and advocacy with a unified and authoritative voice. The society is active with the legislature and sponsors "Donate Life Day."

"I am honored to be selected to this state board so we can continue our mission to educate the public about the benefits of kidney transplantation, organ donation and living donors," Dr. Potter said.

Since the program began in 1987, ETMC has completed 607 kidney transplants.

Currently more than 99,000 Americans are on the national waiting list for a kidney donation.
