Free Educational Resources

  • Not able to attend that local chapter presentation?
  • Missed a good presentation that you really were interested in seeing?
  • Meeting presenter canceling at the last minute?
  • Searching for a good presentation to offer a support group or public media event?
  • Looking to watch/review a topic of interest in your own home - TV or PC screen?
TRIO's Transplant Presentation Library offers an easy answer to those needs and many others. With a wide range of topics presented by world renowned speakers, each year twelve new presentations are added to this growing program. Presentations are now available on YouTube for on-line viewing. Check the listings below to see the many subjects of interest. From discussions of presumed consent, progress reports by DLA (Donate Life America) on organ donor signups state by state, the latest in heart transplant technology or medical experts sharing on their specialties with graphic closeups of every type of organ transplant, even our recent (Jan 12, 2018) 30th Anniversary of TRIO's founding and awards banquet - they're all here for the asking in the TRIO Transplant Presentation Library.

Program History

Across the country many Trio chapters host speaking events on many interesting topics. A new service of Trio national was originally launched in 2009 as an aid to both chapters and patients in making such presentations available for wider audience. In November of 2017, a special project funded by Astellas began converting those early programs #1 through #64 to a format that could be posted on YouTube. The goal was to have all 90+ programs on-line by Spring of 2018, with links to each on this web page for easy use. As of today - Feb 4th 2018, that conversion is complete and all programs are now available on YouTube!

Library Ongoing Growth

Each year there are twelve programs being released monthly with the library annual volumes expanding in titles as more are added. While these presentations in most cases may not have been professionally recorded (especially true for the first dozen or so recordings when we were still just learning how to do this), they still offer a valuable resource that can be shared in many venues. The recording quality of each program improved as we gained more experience in the process of capturing these presentations.

Open Invitation to Contribute

Chapters are invited to record and submit their own local presentations for inclusion in this central Library. Contact the national office for details such as a release form for speakers and technical information on how to submit recorded presentations.
