This is the 15th observance of National Minority Organ Donor Awareness Day. An event founded by noted transplant surgeon Dr. Clive Callender of Howard University Hospital. Despite this national effort to raise awareness around the number of minorities who disproportionately suffer from end-stage organ failure, the need continues to rise. Watch the video below featuring kidney transplant recipient, Alonzo Mourning discussing this issue. Then go to organdonor.gov to find your state’s online donor registry.
