A panel of DPC Patient Ambassadors will talk about how to host education and awareness events, share tips and tricks to build local support, cover what steps are needed before an event and what to expect on the day of the event. The call will also feature time at the end where you can ask questions and share your own events and stories.

Hi my name is Dr. Linda Gromko and I am a Seattle family practice physician who assisted my husband Steve Williams with both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis for three-and-a-half years before his death in April 2011. In coordination with interior designer Jane C. McClure, I wrote Arranging Your Life When Dialysis Comes Home: “The Underwear Factor’ and two other books about my family’s experience with ESRD.
