Registering to be an organ donor can now be done online | Health
The Department of Motor Vehicles and the Department of Health announced Tuesday that it is now possible to join the Organ Donor Registry online.
April is National Organ Donor Awareness Month and for the first time, New Yorkers will be able to enroll for the registry online using the DMV’s “MyDMV” application. People who register through the MyDMV will not need to print, sign or mail their registration application to DOH.
According to a statement, nearly 10,000 are currently waiting for an organ transplant in New York State and every 13 hours someone dies waiting for one.
