Organ Tissue Donation Awareness Project
Act 102 was signed into law in 1994. This legislation established The Governor Robert P. Casey Memorial Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Trust Fund and designated the responsibilities of the Departments of Health, Transportation, Education, and Revenue to support statewide efforts that foster an understanding of the importance of organ/tissue donations.
As a result of this legislation, the Organ Tissue Donation Awareness Project (OTDA) was created by the Department of Education, in conjunction with IU 13. The mission of the OTDA Project is to implement organ/tissue donation and transplantation education in Pennsylvania's secondary schools.
