Florida launches organ and tissue donor registry

Congratulations to Florida state officials for their initiative in establishing an on-line registry where Floridians can sign up to become organ, tissue and eye donors. Previously state residents indicated their preference to be an organ donor on their driver's license. Those who have become donors on their license are encouraged to sign-up and register on line as well.

Florida now joins a growing list of U.S. states that have on-line registries. For a list of Donor Designation (First Person Consent) Status by state please visit UNOS Newsroom fact sheets.

Also, please see Donate Life America's National Donor Designation Report Card
