The first organ and tissue donation campaign that exists at the college level in California. Established in 2001, DoT Org began as an effort to educate and increase consciousness within UCLA students and the surrounding communities concerning the myths and facts of organ and tissue donations. Project within Chicanos/Latinos for Community Medicine (CCM) and housed in the Community Programs Office Student Association (CPOSA) at UCLA.
Chicanos/Latinos for Community Medicine (CCM) Established in 1970 at UCLA by a group of five Chicanos with the mission of improving the health in Latino Communities. CCM serves as a support system for Chicano and Latino Pre-medical students. Educate and Develop a greater awareness of prevalent health disparities in our communities. Our volunteer pool is comprised mostly of CCM general members
Community Programs Office Student Association Established in 1970 by students, staff and faculty to help empower students to become leaders and advocates for the community. Provides us with an office for our organization Advisors to help us plan and improve events. Workshops to teach us about funding as well as personal development.

Recent Projects E-Campaign UC Irvine DoT Org Recently started and implemented in our last Give Life/Give Thanks Donor Drive Will allow us to gauge our success at our events and think critically on ways to improve them. Recently established a second chapter of DoT Org Worked with the campus CCM in order to establish this chapter. We are working closely with them and helping them with respect to funding applications, making connections with community partners, and inviting them to events.
What we hope to see Working more closely with our community partners to collaborate on events and become more effective. Gain a connection with the UCLA Transplant center to see how we can work together. See further expansion of organizations that have a similar mission as DoT Org to increase the number of communities we serve.
