According to LiveOnNY, a nonprofit organ procurement organization that works with patients and families impacted by donation, only 33% of New Yorkers are registered organ donors. Together with LiveOnNY, Hofstra PA students and their impassioned professor/academic coordinator Christine Zammit, set up in the Student Center to help raise that statistic! Throughout the day, we spread awareness about organ donation and were able to help 36 people sign up to be donors. Christine was subsequently interviewed by Fox 5 News about the event, furthering information and awareness about donation. This was a great opportunity to educate the Hofstra and Hempstead community, and play a role in increasing the number of registered organ donors here in NY!
