Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

Kidney donor and Georgetown M.D. candidate Michael Poulson caused a national stir with his piece in the Washington Post titled, "At 18 years old he donated a kidney. Now he regrets it." Poulson says that potential donors are being undersold the risks, and over-promised the safety. He's urging more transparency in the system.

But is he right? Our guests discuss their own experience and understanding of the safety of organ donation.
