In The Community

The Detroit MOTTEP Foundation presents a new “In the Community” Initiative.


"Meet The Moment: Empowering Minority Communities for Health, Wellness, and Readiness”.

"Meet The Moment" is grounded in the principles of awareness, education, and empowerment.  Striving to create a sustained impact by raising awareness, providing essential resources, and fostering a culture of proactive health management, empowering individuals, and families to make informed decisions about their health and well-being. All while seeking to reduce the need for transplants and encouraging greater participation in organ and tissue donation, ultimately saving lives within these vibrant communities.

Through a community-based approach, by collaborating with local leaders, healthcare professionals, community advocates, volunteers, and other nonprofit partners, "Meet The Moment" brings together culturally sensitive messengers who understand the unique challenges faced by minority populations, delivering programs and services that are tailored to the specific needs and contexts of each situation.  We believe that every moment is an opportunity to make a positive difference in someone’s health and well-being.

We invite you to join us on our journey to “Meet the Moment”, making a lasting impact in the community. Whether you are a donor, a partner, a volunteer, or a beneficiary, you are welcome to be part of our family. Together, we can create a brighter and better future for ourselves and others.

Do you have a moment to talk about kidney disease? "Meet the Moment" is a Washtenaw County-based program that addresses excess chronic kidney disease in the African American community, particularly among Black men. It looks into what can be done to make improvements and enhance the quality of life for the affected. Dr. Silas Norman is Co-Medical Director, Kidney and Pancreas Transplant at the University of Michigan, and he'll discuss what has been and what still needs to be done with WEMU's David Fair.
