Dialysis Patient Organizations Form Groundbreaking Partnership To Empower And Educate Patients

Work has started on a 90 day proof of concept for the Baseline Your Health Program, with the purpose of taking theoretical findings and providing hard data to support improved patient care. In the future DPC and the Shad Ireland Foundation will partner broadly on advocacy issues, joint messaging, Hill meetings and joint briefings. The Center and the Foundation will join forces to build national awareness of kidney disease and collaborate on patient-centric research efforts and jointly pursue grant funding opportunities.

With a membership of more than 24,000 dialysis and pre-dialysis patients and their families, DPC's mission is to improve the quality of life of dialysis patients by engaging policy makers, providers and the public. Through patient education, empowerment and advocacy, DPC works to increase awareness about kidney disease and promote favorable public policy. More information: www.dialysispatients.org
