NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - After starting her career at NJ Sharing Network as an intern in 2010, Alyssa D’Addio was recently promoted to Director of Hospital and Community Services. Following her internship, D’Addio filled various roles before serving as Assistant Director of Philanthropy and Foundation Programs. Her main role was managing the Foundation’s day-to-day activities and supporting programs that raise philanthropic money for education, awareness, research and donor family support.

In her new role, D’Addio will oversee the department, focusing on a number of programs and initiatives to deliver the best care and service to the donation community, including hospital development, funeral homes, medical examiners, family services and community and public education. She will concentrate on cultivating and continuing relationships with those that play a vital role in the donation process.

“My connection with NJ Sharing Network began following my dad's passing in 2009.  His organs saved two lives and his tissue enhanced the lives of more than 70 others. I immediately felt like I was meant to be a part of this organization. The mission, the people and the impact...that is what keeps me motivated every single day," D'Addio said. "It's an honor to be part of NJ Sharing Network's team and work alongside those who share the same passion and devotion to making a difference. I'm grateful for the opportunity to grow and broaden the scope of my role here."

In 2017, more than 550 lives were saved with the help of New Jersey residents across the state. Each day, about three people are added to the transplant waiting list; last year, nearly 100 people died while waiting for a transplant.

“Creating this new position aligns with NJ Sharing Network’s mission of ending deaths on the waiting list. In 2017, NJ Sharing Network set an organ donation record with its life-saving work for the third consecutive year and we recognize the importance of each step in the organ donation process and those that help us save as many lives as possible,” Carolyn Welsh, VP and Chief Clinical Officer, NJ Sharing Network, said. “Alyssa has proven success in building relationships and strategic partnerships that further our ability to save and enhance more lives and we are looking forward to seeing her excel in this role.”

And Over Here is the Dining Hall 2

My very first job in admissions was while I was still an undergraduate myself as a tour guide.  Very early on they indoctrinated us with some tricks of the trade.  It’s a dining hall, not a cafeteria.  A residence hall, not a dorm.  If you have to divulge some negative bit of information, sandwich it between two positives.  There were instructions for glossing over ...
