TRIO-Oklahoma is excited to announce our newest elected board member Sandra Edwards!
Sandra Edwards is the recipient of a lifesaving liver transplant on January 24th, 2020 after a long bout with liver failure from Hepatic Encephalopathy and Liver Cancer. Working in healthcare for over 40 years her exposure to the transplant community has been a blessing in this process and aids in her desire to be an advocate for transplant patients.
Sandra is married to her husband John and together they have 3 children, one who is deceased at an early age and 3 grandchildren who spend a lot of time together watching football, baseball and having fun as a family while also traveling as much they can.
Sandra is a National Past President and Board Member of the Association of Surgical Technologists as well as a Past President of the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting where she has volunteered and mentored others in the field for decades. Her desire to mentor and aid other transplant patients as well as advocate for those of diverse backgrounds is in the forefront with involvement for TRIO-Oklahoma.
