FOSTERING PATIENT COMMUNITIES
We foster patient communities through our support of the Renal Support Network (RSN), the Medical Education Institute (MEI), and Dialysis Patient Citizens Education Center (DPCEC) with grants totaling $345,000.
We're working with MEI to empower people living with CKD by funding two program websites — Home Dialysis Central and Life Options — with RSN to deliver high-quality education to CKD patients and their care providers by underwriting their annual essay contest, teen prom, charity bingo event, art contest, magazine articles, and podcast episodes. We’re also working with DPCEC to contribute thought leadership through webinars and magazine articles as well as underwrite the development of resources for their Spanish information page. Together, we're helping people become knowledgeable and proactive about their care and invested in building friendships for a lifetime. We believe support networks such as RSN, MEI, and DPCEC are critical to patient education and holistic care.
