Dr. Oz talks about Organ Donation in New York State
What is it?
This MyDMV service allows you to register online through MyDMV as an organ, eye or tissue donor in the Department of Health (DOH) Donate Life Registry without the need to download, complete and return a printed form. There is a tremendous need for organ donations in NYS. The DMV and DOH Web sites have more information about the program.
Why do I have to sign up to use it?
Secure sign-up protects you. When you sign up for MyDMV, you are verifying your identity with a high degree of certainty. You must provide information such as a document number that appears on your DMV driver license or other photo document and the last four digits of your social security number.
If you prefer to enroll by mail and not register to be an organ donor online, visit the organ and tissue donation page at the Department of Health Web site.
