Discussion Panel

Mid-South Transplant Foundation hosted the Indie Memphis film premier: Tales from the Organ Trade at Malco Studio on the Square. The film was a look into organ trafficking in foreign countries. The panel following the premier was facilitated by Kim Van Frank, Executive Director, MSTF; and included Ric Esther Bienstock (filmmaker), Dr. Santiago Vera (transplant surgeon) and Verlene Carter, BSN, RN. The panel provided an opportunity to tell the facts about organ and tissue donation in the U.S. and answer questions from the audience.
