GTF will be hosting upcoming support groups via ZOOM in order to meet the needs of the transplant community by connecting digitally for support and networking. The only requirement is to be a Georgia resident and be somewhere along the transplant journey (pre- or post-transplant patients, dialysis, caregivers, all organ groups are all welcome). We will follow the lead of the group to discuss relevant topics and will offer helpful guidance as needed.
Groups will be limited to no more than 20 per group. You must have internet accessibility and a device that can work with ZOOM (phone, tablet, iPad, laptop, computer etc).
You must register to attend. Please fill out the form below and directions on joining the zoom support group will follow registration.
Georgia Transplant Foundation’s Mentor Project would like to invite you to a special Zoom meeting.
Transplant Trailblazer: Howell Graham
Georgia Transplant Foundation’s Mentor Project invites you to a special Zoom meeting with Howell Graham. Howell is a former cystic fibrosis patient who is currently the longest surviving double lung transplant recipient in United States history. His was also the first double lung transplant performed in the Southeast U.S. This October, Howell will be celebrating the 30 year anniversary of his transplant. His story has been featured in multiple media outlets, such as NPR, and he has an upcoming feature in Nature Magazine. Howell is dedicated to doing all he can to inspire others and will share his unique experience in a time when double lung transplantation was still experimental. He will also give us key insights into his amazing longevity.
We will host a Q&A session with Howell after the presentation. Submit questions now to firstname.lastname@example.org
