The American Foundation for Donation and Transplantation is the proud sponsor of the David Hume Award and Lecture.

The David Hume Award and Lecture is a collaboration between AFDT and ASTS. Each year, a senior surgeon is honored and invited to give a lecture to address a topic relevant to the winter symposium theme with past significance. AFDT's award supports an honorarium, travel, hotel and administrative expenses associated with the lecture.
