The Wisconsin State Journal recently published several articles on organ preservation and expanding donation by health and medicine reporter David Wahlberg. This three-day report is the second part of a series on organ donation and transplantation supported by a fellowship from the Association of Health Care Journalists and The Commonwealth Fund. A number of transplantation and cardiothoracic surgeons from the UW Department of Surgery were quoted in the articles, including Joshua Mezrich, MD; Tony D’Alessandro, MD; Takushi Kohmoto, MD, PhD; and Hans Sollinger, MD, PhD.

The following articles ran in the Wisconsin State Journal and other newspapers around the state July 5, 6 and 7:
