Cultural Perspectives: African Americans and Organ Donation

Presented on: Tuesday, April 14, 2020

African Americans comprise 11% of living organ donors yet constitute approximately 34% nationally of those waiting to receive a kidney transplant on the waiting list. There are many barriers to organ donation among minorities that include decreased awareness of transplantation, cultural mistrust of the medical community, financial concerns, and fear of the transplant operation. This webinar will discuss these barriers to organ donation and discuss interventions to overcome these barriers to aid in increasing acceptance of organ donation in the African American community.
