Please join us for our inaugural Celebrate Life gala, presented by Piedmont Transplant Institute, on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta hotel for an evening of dinner, dancing, and unique auctions, as we honor leaders in our transplant community.
We will have the pleasure of honoring:
Dr. John Whelchel

Dr. Andrew Smith
Dr. Smith is a graduate of Emory University School of Medicine. He is a past president of Georgia Transplant Foundation’s Board of Directors and specializes in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology.
