For the first time in Indiana, updates from the operating room via Twitter. I-U Health plans to "Live Tweet" info, commentary and photos as surgeons at Indiana University Health University Hospital remove a kidney from a living donor and immediately take the organ to the O-R next door to transplant it starting at 9 a.m. Eastern time today [ Wednesday, June 13].   Dr. Tim Taber, medical director for the kidney transplant program at IU Health and associate professor of clinical medicine for Indiana University School of Medicine says there are “a lot of myths and misconceptions that surround organ transplantation," and says he hopes the Twittercast will encourage more Hoosiers to donate. A 31-year-old man from a town about a half-hour north of Terre Haute will receive a kidney from a friend, a 33-year-old man from the same community.
