Mayo Clinic Radio: Good Samaritan Donor

Miss the show? Here is the podcast! Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 7-05-2014

This week's program is a rebroadcast from Donate Life Month, focusing on the importance of registering as organ, eye and tissue donors. Tune in this Saturday, July 5, at 9 a.m. CT, as we discuss organ donation with good samaritan kidney donor Philip Fischer, M.D., and director of the Mayo Clinic kidney transplant program Mikel Prieto, M.D. There is so much to learn about donating the gift of life! Join us!

Myth or Matter of Fact:  I'm not in the best of health, so I probably can't be a donor.
