iHeartWellness: SoCal features one-on-one conversations with KFI-AM 640 host Mo Kelly and UCLA medical specialists and thought leaders on the latest trends and innovations in their field.

Dr. Abbas Ardehali is the Director of the UCLA Heart, Lung, and Heart-Lung Transplant Programs. The program recently celebrated it's 40th anniversary and is one of the largest and most successful programs of its kind in the country.

Dr. Ardehali discusses the advances in organ donations, surgical techniques, and the cutting-edge medical advancements in machine perfusion, a portable platform that keeps organs alive outside of the body until they can be transplanted.

April is National Organ Donation Month and UCLA encourages Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors. One donor can save up to 8 lives.
