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.

Hello all! This week I want to talk about something that I’ve been asked about quite a bit. Lots of folks have been calling me to find out how to submit complaints to their dialysis centers.

But when it comes to individual patients at individual centers, we just don’t have the resources to get involved in every case at the local level.

As it has been mentioned in previous blog posts, World Kidney Day is a great opportunity to get out in the community and raise awareness about kidney disease. For us here at the DPC office this means inviting some of our most active Patient Ambassadors from around the country to join us in the nation’s capital.
