The Gift Interrupted Wins NY Emmy Nomination

Today I'm delighted to hear my story "The Gift Interrupted" has won a NY Emmy nomination. Here's the summary: A powerful investigation of the two-month shutdown of New York’s organ transplant system during the height of Covid in early 2020 and its devastating impact on a highly-vulnerable population who couldn't get life-saving surgery. Newsday learned “several hundred patients” died or had their health severely impacted when transplant operations stopped and several organs had to be discarded because of the virus. Newsday contacted every organ transplant program in the NY metro area, many dialysis centers, and "gift of life" support groups. Despite great reluctance due to privacy concerns, Newsday convinced doctors, patients, and survivors of the dead to be interviewed for this deeply-felt story.
