Dialysis Patient Organizations Form Groundbreaking Partnership To Empower And Educate Patients

Dialysis Patient Citizens, DPC Education Center and the Shad Ireland Foundation Combine Efforts to Improve Patient Quality of Life

WASHINGTON, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dialysis Patient Citizens (DPC), the DPC Education Center and the Shad Ireland Foundation (SIF) are proud to announce a new partnership effort aimed at empowering dialysis patients and improving patient quality of life. Under this new partnership, the organizations will collaborate on innovative and engaging educational resources starting with the Baselineā„¢ Your Health Program, a technology driven patient empowerment tool that educates and inspires patients to take an active role in their life by taking control of their disease, as pre-dialysis, dialysis or transplant patients.

"We are excited about this unique collaboration between DPC, the Shad Ireland Foundation (SIF) and the DPC Education Center," said Hrant Jamgochian, DPC and DPC Education Center Executive Director. "Teaming up with the Shad Ireland Foundation will allow us to capitalize on the unique skills and expertise of the Foundation to better inform and empower the DPC community and beyond. We look forward to working closely together to expand our reach and strengthen our mission of improving patient quality of life."

"While the Baseline Program has something for all chronic kidney disease patients, I am particularly excited about the potential the Baseline tools have to help, not only kidney patients awaiting a renal transplant, but also their prospective kidney donors as they too, prepare for transplantation," stated Shad Ireland, Executive Director, SIF. "This may be the first time that comprehensive resources focused on diet, weight loss and exercise have been available for both members of the donor and recipient team and I couldn't be more excited about the opportunity to move this initiative ahead in partnership with DPC and the DPC Education Center."

The three organizations share a common mission and goal of educating and empowering those affected by kidney disease and reducing the impact of kidney disease on individuals, families and the country as a whole. This dynamic partnership will unite the technological expertise of the Shad Ireland Foundation with the membership power of DPC and educational reach of The Center. Combined, the three organizations hope to develop, implement and disperse cutting-edge educational tools and resources that enable kidney disease patients to be better-informed and more active participants in their care.
