Over 100,000 Americans are currently waiting for a transplant of a kidney or other vital organ.  Because the demand outstrips the supply, thousands of people a year die before a suitable organ becomes available.  One proposed solution to this problem, put forward most prominently by Dr. Sally Satel, is to compensate people for donating organs.  But many ethicists, including Professor David Magnus, have reservations about this approach. While other leaders in the transplant field, such as Tom Mone, have successfully used other approaches to increase organ donation rates. Would paying people for organ donations be effective and would it be just?  Are there other ways to address the growing shortage of life-saving organs?  

Please join these three distinguished experts in a fascinating and important conversation at our next Health Policy Forum.
