It is a privilege to be a part of this outstanding work and I am honored to continue leading Eversight toward an even brighter future.”

Prior to joining Eversight, Bosch was the director of communications and government affairs for Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network, one of the nation’s largest federally designated organ procurement organizations. He has served as an expert panelist for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Division of Transplantation, and as board president and advisory council chair for Donate Life America. He is a member of Donate Life Illinois, the Michigan Coalition on Donation, the Positive Organizations Consortium at the University of Michigan and the Ann Arbor (Host) Lions Club, among others.
