According to a press release from Donate Life America and Discovery Health, the number of registered organ donors in the United States is up 10% over the last 18 months.
Here are a couple of interesting facts from the press release: - Only 35% of licensed drivers and ID card holders have committed themselves to donation by registering to be donors through their state registry or motor vehicle department. - In 2007, only four states had a designation rate of at least 50%: Iowa (67%), Colorado (60%), Ohio (52%) and Utah (50%).
