It’s a fact. New York ranks 50th out of 50 states for registered organ donors.
On Thursday, October 6, from 9 am to 5 pm, Stony Brook Medicine and Stony Brook University will be part of an effort to educate and change that ranking by registering adults, 18 or older, at three locations during the Second Annual Organ Donation Day:
- Stony Brook University Hospital — outside the Marketplace Café
- Stony Brook University — at the Student Activities Center
- Level 2 of Health Sciences — by the coffee shop
There will also be a kick-off event at 10 am in the Hospital lobby.
Last year there were 650 new organ registrations that day, which has the potential to save more than 5,000 lives. Let’s increase that number this year. All it takes is a signature.
