Hello my name is Meshia Adams and I am so excited to be a new member of the prestigious Patient Ambassador Program at Dialysis Patient Citizens and for the opportunity to contribute to this blog. I made this request because I have personally been dealing with Chronic Kidney Disease for over 18 years. I have been on both peritoneal and hemodialysis. I had my first kidney transplant in March of 1995 and on July 6, 2012 received a second transplant.

Today we are excited to announce the creation of a new sister organization The DPC Education Center (The Center). The new organization, which is incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, will work together with DPC to advance their shared mission of improving the quality of life of all kidney disease and end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients.

This year has been an early and aggressive flu season. There have been slightly more hospitalizations than normal, but the trends are still too early to be definitive.
