Education for the Public

181.1 - Education for the Public

Presenter: Young, Kimberly, Edmonton, AB, Canada
Authors: Kimberly Young


In the future donor programs will be well served by building on deeper connections with potential donors as a first step by being very clear on the messages or the brand that they represent to the public. Towards attracting and retaining donors understanding the donor journey by age group is key. Based on this understanding educational materials including digital and social content can be developed to support and customize ongoing engagement. Overall, education materials need to evolve and align with the digital expectations of donors and they reinforce the social mission of sharing what matters most!


Kimberly Young is the Director of Donation for Canadian Blood Services, and current President of the ISODP. Ms. Young has a history of accomplishments in the OTDT field, including contributions at the program, provincial, national and international levels.

Her commitment to collaborative leadership is key in building relationships with governments, programs and stakeholders leading to the development and implementation of innovative improvements in OTDT across Canada and the world.
