Organ Donation and Paired Donor Exchange Chat

April is National Donate Life Month. This month highlights the growing need for organ and tissue donation, and provides a positive reminder for people to sign up to become organ donors. In honor of Donate Life month, Dr. Nicole Turgeon of the Emory Transplant Center held a live chat to answer questions about organ donation, including how many people are currently waiting for an organ, what organs can be donated, and who can donate. She also discussed paired donor exchange – what it is, how it works and how paired donor exchange is helping patients get a second chance at life. If you are interested in learning more about organ donation and how paired donor exchange works, check out the full transcript of the chat below.
