Dr. Lebovitz spearheaded the CEO Search Committee and aided LifeBanc in the creation of their DCD donor program. He assisted LifeBanc and the local transplant centers during their conversions to electronic organ allocations and in the same year, was elected Medical Advisor for AOPO. In 2008, Dr. Lebovitz continued to serve as a leader in the field by performing the first face transplant in the United States.
