Did You Know?

As of February 14, 2017, individuals sixteen and seventeen years of age are eligible to enroll in the New York State Donate Life Registry.  In the event a sixteen or seventeen year old who has joined New York’s donor registry may be considered for donation, the parents or legal guardians of that individual will give final consent for donation to take place.  Upon reaching the age of eighteen, that individual’s enrollment shall be regarded as consent to donation. Please make sure you inform the public of this change during your voter registration drives.
