Current Legal and Ethical Issues in Organ Donation: What Can Be Done to Help Supply Meet Demand
Monday, October 24, 2011 6:00 pm-9:00 pm

The first part will explore the legal and ethical issues surrounding organ donation and allocation: changes in the current consent system to an opt-out system, the pros and cons of legalizing incentives, and how these issues may be addressed in our multi-cultural society. The second part of the program will address allocation: directed donations, age limitations and access to transplants.
