Heart Transplant and LVAD Support Group

Support Groups Are Temporarily Suspended

We are currently unable to host in-person meetings to respect social distancing, but we are exploring some virtual support group options and will provide updates as soon as possible.

The Transplant Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital New Brunswick invites all pre- and post-heart transplant patients and LVAD patients to participate in our support group events. Each month brings the opportunity to meet other heart transplant and LVAD patients, and listen to a relevant discussion from a health specialist in the field.

Patients and their family and friends are all welcome. No commitment or reservation is necessary. Light refreshments will be served.
