DONATING ORGANS: MYTH VERSUS FACT. Organ donation can save lives, but there are still not enough donors to meet the demand. Latino donors are even harder to find. Promoters of organ donation say many Latinos are dissuaded from organ donation because they believe the Catholic Church doesn’t support organ donation or they believe organs are harvested from people before they are pronounced brain dead. This program is in collaboration with the series Health Dialogues of KQED, San Francisco's public radio.
