Employees from human resources and facilities come together for a kidney paired donation.

Although it seemed fortuitous for Robert Imes, the decision to donate one of her kidneys was hardly a sudden idea on Pamela Paulk’s part. She had been in the OR to watch surgeon Robert Montgomery perform a kidney transplant here 10 years ago. In her personal life, she had seen the difference that kidney transplantation made in the lives of two of her friends. And at work, she had been asked to speak at a celebration for minority donors.

“There comes a point in my life where I can’t talk about something and not do it,” says the vice president of human resources for The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System. “I can’t say, This is important, this is something people should think about doing, but then not be willing to do it myself.”
