SALT LAKE CITY — Deannie Wimmer interviews the surgical director of living donor at the University Hospital about the decision to live tweet a kidney transplant.

"It's good to educate people that live donation for kidney transplant is very safe," said Dr. Jeff Campsen. "And if we can show that this is something that we can do routinely and we do well and we do safely, and they can follow the exact steps of that, it's a good way to educate people in Utah on how we do this."

Campsen also talks about the the thousands of people nationwide who are waiting for a kidney transplant and the impact of a live transplant donation.
