Akron-Canton TRIO is a local Ohio chapter of Transplant Recipients International Organization. Akron-Canton TRIO is a 501(c)3 non-profit support/information group for those who have received a transplant, their families and support people, those waiting for a transplant, health care professionals, living donors, and donor families. All are welcome. If you have a transplant, are on a waiting list, think you may qualify for a transplant, are an organ donor or a member of a donor’s family, or friends/family/support person for any of the above or are simply interested in the transplant process, you are invited to join us.
The local chapter was founded over 25 years ago and for most of that time we met on the third Tuesday of every month at the North Canton Medical Foundation Educational Building from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. All meetings were free and you did not have to be a member to attend. Meetings began at 6:30 pm with a pot luck meal, followed by announcements, a movie or a speaker, finishing with a round table discussion. February of 2020 was our last meeting before the pandemic.
Staring in March 2021, on the third Tuesday of every month from 6:30 to 8 pm we will resume gathering in a digital format with a Zoom meeting. If you or someone you know is interested please contact us and we will provide you a link.
