These chapters share here the recording of a ZOOM session that was co-hosted by transplant support groups in the NY metro area - including TRIO Manhattan and Long Island Chapters, on April 23. It was very helpful for the 90+ participants who attended the ZOOM video-conference, and may be useful information for other recipients who face similar concerns and challenges at this uncertain time.
This Q & A was with  Drs. Friedman & Schiano discussing . . .
