Woman Raises Awareness of Organ Donor Registry
Carol Kankoski misses the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping, the music, and the decorations.

University flags will be lowered Monday, Dec. 19, in memory of David MacDonald, a registered nurse at Strong Memorial Hospital, who died Dec. 1 at age 57. MacDonald, who lived in Rochester, joined the University in 1979.
