Saving Lives with Yung-Mee Park, MD, Bone Marrow Donor Advocate and Kaiser Permanente Physician (Part #2)

August 30, 2021

In our two-part bone marrow donation series, Dr. Deb talks to two women who have remarkable stories. Together they partner on Will You Marrow Me?, a bone marrow awareness program that encourages racially and ethnically diverse populations to register as donors. In part two, Dr. Deb interviews Dr. Yung-Mee Park, a strong bone marrow donor advocate, donor, and Kaiser Permanente family care physician. 

 

There’s a national shortage of bone marrow donations among minorities and biracial populations, with 70% coming from Caucasian donors. Unfortunately, thousands of patients diagnosed with blood cancer, such as leukemia or lymphoma, don't have a genetic match and desperately wait for a life-saving bone marrow donation.
