Carol Dobies, MBA, founder and chief executive officer of Dobies Health Marketing, was recently appointed to the Board of Directors for Gift of Life, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating Greater Kansas City communities about transplantation.
For more than two decades, Gift of Life has served as a national model for support, awareness and success of organ, eye and tissue donation. The organization collaborates with the transplant community, civic groups and area schools – driving the conversation through education and providing opportunities for transplant recipients to support and mentor current patients.
“I am honored to join the Gift of Life Board of Directors because I share their passion for greater awareness, understanding and collaboration,” Dobies said. “As a new Board member, I believe my marketing expertise and experience with the organ donation and transplantation industry can contribute to the mission, and I am eager to do my part to reduce the number of people on transplant waiting lists in Kansas and Missouri.”
As owner of Kansas-City based Dobies Health Marketing, Dobies has worked with numerous organizations associated with organ transplantation and donation over the past 30 years. She previously served on the board for the American Board for Transplant Certification, and she has long supported Midwest Transplant Network and regional and national clients with missions to elevate awareness of the life-saving power of organ donation and transplantation.
“Gift of Life’s vision and goals align closely with our company’s commitment to community service and our mission to help people make better decisions about their health,” Dobies said.
