TRIO is an independent, not-for-profit, international organization committed to improving the quality of life of transplant candidates, recipients, their families and the families of organ and tissue donors.

As the TRIO chapter of Seattle Washington we serve the Pacific Northwest transplant community in the areas of: Awareness, Support, Education, and Advocacy.

The Pacific Northwest Chapter of TRIO was conceived in May of 2011 and formally recognized by the State of Washington in June of 2012. Interest in the group is growing quickly, including not only Pacific Northwest transplant recipients, but patients waiting on transplant lists, their caregivers, living donors, friends and family members.

Our monthly meetings feature medical professionals and subject experts speaking on a variety of concerns affecting the transplant community including medication, nutrition and financial issues. Speakers scheduled to speak at our meeting will included physicians from the University of Washington, Swedish Medical Center, Virginia Mason, Seattle Children’s Hospital transplant centers, and other local medical and business professionals.

Through our speakers bureau we provide trained speakers for your business or club event. So please, “Give and let live”.
