How to View a Program
Each TRIO chapter has a full set of these annual volumes (12 programs each) that are offered as a lending library for chapter members. If you don't see them at a meeting, ask your president for access. Chapters are invited to nominate "chapter champions" who will be updated from the TRIO national office with the latest developments in this program to share at meetings, so the newest topics should be part of each meeting agenda. Of course you can always check this web page for the updated index which also may show some "coming attractions" of topics planned for recording in the next few months. In the most recent months, presenters have given permission for their talk to be made available for on-line viewing so you can click on their title and watch the presentation on YouTube.
Members at large (i.e., those not connected to a local TRIO Chapter) may contact the national office to make arrangements to view individual programs of interest. There is no charge for this service and members can keep programs they select with no requirement to return them. "Contact us" at the bottom of this page has address and phone information to make that request.
Across the country many Trio chapters host speaking events on many interesting topics. A new service of Trio national was launched in 2009 as an aid to both chapters and patients in making such presentations available for wider audience. The library binder and the first program were sent to each chapter President. Every two months two new DVD's are being mailed to each chapter containing presentations recorded from recent meetings where noted transplant professionals have shared on some topic of interest to our transplant community. It is anticipated your chapter may use these DVD presentations at chapter meetings and/or local events as an educational resource. Our vision is that each chapter will eventually build a Transplant Presentation Library where individual programs on DVD can also be loaned out to patients interested in the topics contained in this library for personal in home viewing.
Library Ongoing Growth
Each year there are twelve programs being released bimonthly with the library annual volumes expanding in titles as more DVD's are added. A central index is maintained here on TRIO’s website so all members can know what is available from their local chapters. While these presentations in most cases may not have been professionally recorded, they still offer a valuable resource that can be shared in many venues. The recording quality of each program continues to improve as we gain more experience in the process of capturing these presentations. If individual DVD's get lost or damaged, contact the national office for a prompt and free replacement.
Open Invitation to Contribute
Chapters are invited to record and submit their own local presentations for inclusion in this central Library. While they were provided with the Presentation Library binder sent to each chapter President, you may contact the national office for details such as a release form for speakers and technical information on how to submit recorded presentations.
