Organ Donation Policies around the World

with Tom Mone, CEO of OneLegacy

A limited supply of organs continues to hinder organ transplantation around the world. A significant percentage of potential organ donors are lost either to medical failure, or through an inability to obtain consent for donation.  Millions of people in the world have benefited from organ transplantation and it remains the primary treatment for kidney failure. Listen in as Lori and Tom discuss policies and the evolution of transplantation and what the future holds for living and deceased organ donation in our own country and around the world.

Lori Hartwell is the author of Chronically Happy - Joyful Living in Spite of Chronic Illness, and President/Founder of Renal Support Network. A kidney patient since the age of two, she has consistently strived to instill hope into the lives of people who live with chronic kidney disease.
