Doctor starts program to close the gap for Black organ transplant patients

From NBC Nightly News

Studies show that 26 percent of Black patients waiting for an organ receive one and the number is nearly double for white patients. Dr. Dinee Simpson is one of 10 Black, female transplant surgeons practicing in the U.S. She started the first and only program in the country that helps African Americans receive organs.


We are so proud to have Dr. Dinee Simpson on our Board of Directors! Her work is changing and saving lives.
