Would you like to register to be an organ donor? We’ve all had that question posed to us at one point, whether at the DMV or filling out a voter registration form. Well it turns out these efforts don’t the job done. A recent study shows that state programs developed over the past 20 years to increase donation rates have basically failed. This is most apparent in New York which ranks dead last. Here the number of people signed up is less than half the national average. Working our way up has its challenges.
