Minnesota Public Radio Show Today on Payment for Donations

Yers truly joined the (disconcerting) conversation today on Minnesota Public Radio's Mid Morning show, featuring two prominent transplant physicians and leaders on why they are promoting a pay-for-organ solution to the kidney shortage in the U.S. I have tremendous concerns that this is going way too far given that we haven't even managed to support the living donors with basic emotional and economic support to see how that works. I called in, and was hoping for the chance for a little more give and take than I got, but no matter what any of us think of the conversation, it was a delight that it is being had!
