The Patient's Voice

Welcome to DPC's blog where you have the ability to share your thoughts and interact with others from the kidney community and beyond. It is a place of genuine connection as well as advocacy and support. Your voice and your stories are more powerful than any statistic or study.

Back a couple years ago, I had to sue my employer through the EEOC  (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) for violating my rights under the Americans with Disabilities ACT.   Below is some of my experience doing that.

In light of the recent posts and comments here and elsewhere, I figured it was time to post about the process I went through with the EEOC and getting my case filed and accepted.

Seasons come and go and cold winds blow. Holiday Greetings!

Well, I would never have made it as a Hallmark card bard.
