The society is named for the Trillium plant species, which has a broad diversity of species growing in the southern Appalachian mountains and was used for its medicinal purposes by Native American tribes. 



History of the Society

The society was founded in 2022 after a recommendation from the Beaver College of Health Sciences' Advisory Board which recognized the need to highlight individuals making a difference in the health and wellness of their communities, and to the Beaver College of Health Sciences.
