Hello Office, Rectorate Building 
Piazzale Aldo Moro 5, Rome

Sapienza has joined the “Giving Our Best” Campaign (hashtag: #DiamoIlMeglioDiNoi) to promote the culture of organ, tissue and cell donation.

Granting Consent for Donation

On Wednesday, May 10, from 8 am to 3:30 pm, the AdSpem mobile blood unit will provide information on organ, tissue and cell donation and allow students, professors and other staff to sign the AIDO (Italian Donor Association) donation consensus form.

Remember that you can change your mind at any time and that your last decision is the valid one!

Stem Cell Donation

There will also be an information point on the donation of hematopoietic stem cells manned by ADMO volunteers (Association of Bone Marrow Donors).

Bone Marrow Donation

Moreover, anyone aged 18-35, can take the initial screening tests (medical questionnaire and blood test) necessary to join the Italian bone marrow donor registry. These simple tests will be performed directly at the Adspem mobile blood unit by doctors from the Policlinico Umberto I and San Camillo Forlanini Hospital of Rome.

The “Giving Our Best” Campaign is promoted by the Italian Ministry of Health and the National Transplant Centre in collaboration with various associations.

We are all united under the sign of the heart! We look forward to Wednesday, May 10, because your choice to donate can save a life! Your "YES" can make a difference. Let’s Give our Best!

Next Campaign Day: June 7
