What is living organ donation? What are the risks, and how can I get involved?

The Center for Living Organ Donors at Yale New Haven Health invites you to a living donation discussion. You can save lives by becoming a live organ and tissue donor. There is an overwhelming satisfaction in giving life to another human being who would otherwise have a very poor quality of life or even die while waiting for a transplant. Last year, more than 5,900 kidney and liver transplants were made possible by living donors. Right now, Connecticut has over 1,000 patients on the kidney transplant waitlist, and it can take 5-6 years to receive a kidney from a deceased transplant waitlist.

Yale New Haven Hospital and the Center of Living Organ Donors are committed to fostering health and well-being for living donors in our community.
