Op-Ed by Karina Albistegui Adler Featured in New York Daily News: “Consider the vital care this hospital provides”February 3, 2024
“Historically, biased listing criteria, including race-based algorithms, have resulted in the exclusion of low-income and Black/African-American people from receiving kidney transplants. As the only safety net, or “public” hospital in the city with a kidney transplant, cutting this vital lifeline that SUNY Downstate’s University Hospital provides would be a devastating blow… Any plans for SUNY Downstate must ensure support for SUNY patients who are listed/or are in the process of being listed to obtain a transplant… and robust financial support is necessary.” – Karina Albistegui Adler
