“Reflections on the Body: Living Organ Donation ”

By Macey Henderson, J.D., co-founder, HERO Network

 

Henderson, a Medical Humanities & Health Studies alumna, will discuss living donor organ donation in the U.S. and abroad, the altruistic non-related donors, donor chains, and how social media plays a role in soliciting for potential donors.

Discussion will include: property rights to our own body parts, a short personal narrative, and donation stories with less than perfect outcomes.

 

Pizza will be served.

Please RSVP to medhum@iupui.edu.

Don’t forget the 2013 Careers in Medical Humanities & Health Studies,

same room, 10:30AM—12 noon & 1:15PM—4:00PM!
