and those who incorrectly choose heads or tails are eliminated. The
guessing and coin flipping continues until one person remains and is
the WINNER! Game starts at 9:15 pm in the Gallery. You must be

Meet the 2019 Stories of Hope. Each will be in attendance at the Soirée and we hope you'll take a moment to introduce yourself and hear their amazing "Stories of Hope". 


 The featured show in the Gallery at UNOS during United for UNOS 11th Annual Soirée is "Life" by Dr. Joseph Scalea. 

Dr. Joseph Scalea is a multi-organ transplant surgeon focusing in the areas of pancreas, islet cell, liver and kidney transplantation at the University of Maryland Medical System. As a pioneering medical scientist, he was recently recognized for performing the first transport of a human organ by drone. 

Dr. Scalea has been painting for more than 15 years and views his deep interest in the arts as a counterbalance to the intensity of science, medicine, translational engineering, and surgery. His most recent works use variably sized multi-colored circles, juxtaposed with life-forms such as geese, hummingbirds, and horses to illustrate the development of an idea from spark to complete thought.
