TRIO Philadelphia transplant candidate events

Our chapter, with its rich local resource of 43 transplant programs, designed and carried out some 'Transplant Patient  Workshops" held at the Gift of Life Donor Program offices in Philadelphia.

With an agenda build around the UNOS "What Every Patient Needs to Know" patient guide, our chapter members and invited medical professional speakers offered attendees insights as to what transplant life can hold for successful living with an organ transplant.

Several other follow-up workshops were planned and agendas built, addressing the transplant recipient audience, but never offered once built.  Maybe  someday we will resurrect those plans (with your help?)


TRIO: Transplant Recipients International Organization, Inc.

TRIO Philadelphia was chartered on June 4, 1997, as a member of the TRIO national network of local support chapters by our co-founder and first president, Elizabeth Rubin, and a group of dedicated and passionate transplant recipients, living donors and their caregiver family supporters.  Our chapter has a long history of active engagement both in the TRIO national board and many local like-minded organizations such as the regional OPO (organ procurement organization), the Gift of Life Donor Program.
