Abstract

A survey of 31 African Americans were conducted at a rural church in the southeastern United States to determine if certain attitudes were more prevalent in that area and if education or age influenced donation patterns. Data were collected using a modified 1990 survey of Georgian's attitudes toward donation and transplantation. T-test was performed to determine if differences in attitudes existed. No differences in attitudes toward organ donation existed with regard to the demographic variables. Religious implications were revealed to have a influence on donation patterns. The theoretical framework used in this study was the cognitive and social learning theory will cause variation in the dependent variable of this study. No statistical significance was found in this study.
