TRIO Maryland is a membership organization for transplant recipients, candidates and their families, donor member families, and other interested individuals. Individuals who have undergone transplant surgery provide support for other transplant candidates, recipients, their families and donor family members.
By sharing personal experiences, chapter members complement the counseling provided by healthcare professionals; they offer a special understanding that comes only from firsthand experience of the transplant process.
TRIO Maryland holds regular meetings, presents guest speakers, coordinates organ donor awareness activities, participates in speaking engagements, and shares social events. For more information on membership, visit www.triomaryland.org.
