It is with great excitement that we announce Shannon Edwards as the IIAM Regional Director – East Coast! Shannon brings a wealth of experience to IIAM. Many of you know Shannon from her nearly 17 years at UNOS, most recently as Manager, Policy and Community Relations and preceded by roles in Regional Administration (RA); including a leadership position as Assistant Director. Prior to joining UNOS, Shannon worked with the Washington Regional Transplant Community as a Clinical Recovery Associate and subsequently a Recovery Coordinator where she was first introduced to the donation community and found her passion. Shannon joins Mike Vara, IIAM Regional Director – West Coast, as we further strengthen our OPO partnerships in 2021. Many of you can look forward to hearing from Shannon in the coming weeks and months. Until that time, feel free to contact Shannon directly. The year is off to a great start!
