MOTTEP of Cleveland uses a community-based approach, with ethnically similar messengers to dispel the myths and misconceptions that prevent minority populations from participating in this life-giving and lifesaving procedure. Cleveland MOTTEP is affiliated with the Centers for Dialysis Care and is a 501 (C) (3) organization  message that emphasizes wellness, health and disease prevention. 

Cleveland MOTTEP (Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program) was established in 1995 as a local affiliate of National MOTTEP, founded in 1991 by Dr. Clive Callender, a Howard University transplant surgeon.
