Jason Woody Named Chairman of the Board of Donate Life America

March 9, 2016

Beginning January 2016, Lions Eye Institute for Transplant & Research (LEITR) CEO Jason Woody will commence his term as Chairman of the Board of Donate Life America. Woody will utilize his executive knowledge and skills to greatly benefit the nonprofit organization dedicated to driving individuals, organizations, and communities to increase the number of designated organ, eye and tissue donors who save and heal lives.

Woody has dedicated 25 years of unwavering service to LEITR. Woody’s understanding of the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation will serve Donate Life America well. As CEO, he has acquired firsthand experience in overseeing the operations of LEITR, including the organization’s Eye Bank, cutting-edge Ocular Research Center, and Foundation. LEITR is recognized as one of the the largest eye banks in the world and annually facilitates approximately 3,000 corneal transplants. In addition, Jason has been personally impacted by donation as his grandmother was an eye donor.  According to Donate Life America, more than 47,000 corneas were transplanted in 2013!

Donate Life America is an alliance of nonprofit organizations committed to increasing organ, eye and tissue donation. Currently, nearly 124,000 men, women and children are awaiting organ transplants in the United States. Donate Life America works in conjunction with its partners to facilitate high-performing donor registries, develop and execute effective multi-media donor education programs, and motivate the American public to register now as organ, eye and tissue donors.

In his new role as President of Donate Life America, Woody seeks to make a positive impact. Woody states, “It is an honor and a pleasure to serve as Chairman of the Board of Donate Life America. As Chair, I will continue to emphasize the value and importance of organ, eye and tissue donation as a means of saving and healing lives.”
