I am writing this post in red....why? I recently attended a conference that spoke on the lower rate of organ transplants in minorities. I knew that organ donations are lower in other ethnic groups but what I heard shocked me. That when most African Americans are first put on dialysis they are not even told about transplantation. WTF is that about.
There are a lot of misconceptions in various ethnic groups about organ donation and organ transplants.
So what can we do about this....one word EDUCATE these various ethnic groups. By talking to them and giving them resources such as C.O.R.E.
so what have we learned today.....Education never stops and this type of Education CAN SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE!!
