Before the holidays, we opened our application for our 2018 advocacy day. It is apparent that advocacy is part of many ESRD patients’ New Year’s resolutions because we received almost 150 applications to attend our advocacy day! This is a record number of interested members willing to have their voice heard by legislators on behalf of ESRD patients across the nation. If you missed the deadline, but advocacy is still a part of your New Year’s resolutions there are still ways to get involved! Visit our kidney action center to send messages to your Members of Congress on issues affecting kidney care and consider joining our Patient Ambassador program. Additionally, if you are interested in learning more about advocacy; what it is, how to get involved etc. consider joining the DPC Education Center’s first education webinar of the year on January 25, 2018 at 2PM eastern.
