VIENNA, Va. — July 22, 2016 —
The Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO), the Association representing the nation’s 58 federally-designated organ procurement organizations, recently welcomed Maria Stadtler to the staff as education program administrator.
“We are thrilled to have Maria [Stadtler] join the AOPO team,” said Elling Eidbo, chief executive officer of AOPO. “Working with our Education and Training Council, her expertise will help bring our professional education programs for membership to new heights, and in turn translate to more lives saved through organ, eye and tissue donation.”
Stadtler graduated from the University of Munich Nursing School with degrees in nursing, nurse anesthesiology and ICU medicine and holds an International Master for Donation of Organs, Tissues and Cells from the University of Barcelona. Prior to AOPO, she founded Methodica® LLC, which provided consulting and advisory services to organizations seeking to develop education, training and research opportunities in donation and transplantation.
