Joseph S. Roth, Joins Host Mike Hudson on “In the Public Interest”

Joseph S. Roth is the Chief Executive Officer of the New Jersey Organ and Tissue Sharing Network, located in New Providence, NJ. A national leader in the field of organ procurement, donation, and transplantation, Joe Roth has been a vocal advocate for broadening public awareness of the opportunities and the challenges to increased organ donation. He has proposed a bold new initiative in New Jersey that holds promise for the many Americans awaiting the “Gift of Life.”
 VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network today announced that Joseph S. Roth will join Mike Hudson, host of “In the Public Interest” on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel ( www.voiceamerica.com/show/1933/in-the-public-interest), Thursday, April 26, 2012, at 4 p.m. Pacific Time.

Just 43% of Americans are registered organ donors. That’s a troubling societal problem, according to Joe Roth. He advocates new public policy approaches to increased donation, including a proposal he calls the “Golden Rule.” His plan in New Jersey would limit transplant coverage for people who decline to register as organ donors. The first of its kind in the country, Roth’s proposal would not deny an organ to anyone. But under this proposal, insurers could limit reimbursement for the hospital and medical costs associated with transplants of the kidney, pancreas, liver, heart, intestines and lungs. His idea would “prompt us all to think about our civic responsibility—and our willingness to treat others the way we want to be treated.”

“In the Public Interest” airs live on Thursdays at 4 PM Pacific/6 PM Central/7 PM Eastern on The VoiceAmerica Variety Channel. To access the show, log on at www.voiceamericavariety.com.
