Illini Stories: Professor Brian Quick

U of I professor Brian Quick with his father.

Brian Quick is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication and the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Quick is an advocate for organ and tissue donation and has served as the principle investigator for several federal grants focused on increasing donor designation rates. But, he also has a very personal connection to organ and tissue donation.  In 1992, his father received a lifesaving kidney transplant. “Organ donation, for me, is very personal.” Quick continues, “Had my father not received a kidney transplant, he would never have seen me graduate from high school or college. He would have never met my wife or my two boys.”

Help Gift of Hope and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign set the Guinness World Record for most organ donor registrations in a day.  You can stop by the Gift of Hope booth on the Quad on August 26th or you can register online TODAY at

    It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the
    same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
