TRIO Maryland is a peer support group, a non-profit membership organization working to improve the quality of life for transplant recipients, candidates and their families. Donor families and others interested in transplant may also join. By sharing personal experiences, chapter members complement the counseling provided by healthcare professionals. We are committed to improving the quality of lives touched by the miracle of transplantation through support, advocacy, education and awareness.
TRIO Maryland has been operating since 2013 and provides an in-person transplant mentoring program at Johns Hopkins Hospital and The University of Maryland Medical Systems.
