Transplant Patient Education Series
The University of Maryland Medical Center has a group for transplant patients, which includes liver, kidney, pancreas, heart and lung transplant patients.
From September through May we offer a monthly series of educational topics of interest to transplant and potential transplant patients. We will have speakers and presentations, with time for questions, discussion, and meeting other patients.
The group is open to anyone who is waiting for or has received a transplant and is being followed at the University of Maryland Medical Center.
The group will meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 5 – 6:30 p.m.
Discount parking is available at the Plaza Garage on Redwood Street.
