Wellness Wednesday: Genetically Modified Pig Heart Transplanted Into Human
Doctors at the University of Maryland Medical Center last week successfully transplanted a genetically modified pig heart into a 57-year-old man.
The groundbreaking procedure offers hope to hundreds of thousands of patients with failing organs. But it also raises serious medical and ethical concerns.
Today on Wellness Wednesday on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we discuss the pros and cons of animal-to-human transplantation. Well talk about school nurse concerns over kids and COVID as well as the latest fitness news and research.
- Kate King, president-elect of the National School Nurses Association and school nurse with the Columbus City Schools
- Brendan Parent, director of transplant ethics and policy research at New York University's Grossman School of Medicine
