The Centre for Living Organ Donation at UHN Toronto General Hospital

Our February Lunch & Learn – Addressing Racial & Cultural Barriers in Living Kidney Donation & Transplantation – started with the lived experience of patient partner, Carl Hicks, a kidney transplant recipient. Following Mr. Hicks, Dr. Istvan Mucsi, Lydia-Joi Marshall and Noor El-Dassouki discussed racial inequities in access to living kidney donation and transplantation – examining both statistics and patient experiences. The importance of community-led research was highlighted by Lydia-Joi Marshall, a co-investigator for the A.C.T.I.O.N. Project.
