Friday Factoid: Can you be a donor?  |  May 17, 2013

Friday Factoid:

A common myth about donation is that if you have a history of medical illness, you cannot be a donor.

Fact: At the time of death, the team that coordinates donation will review medical and social histories.  Many diseases that were considered to exclude organ donation are no longer considered a barrier. Examples include hepatitis and diabetes.

Happy Friday!
