Mayo Clinic Radio: Good Samaritan Kidney Donor

April is Donate Life Month, which focuses attention on the importance of registering as organ, eye and tissue donors. Tune in Saturday, April 19, 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.
