DPC is a nationwide non-profit organization of more than 35,000 dialysis and pre-dialysis patients and family members joined together to help improve kidney patients’ quality of life. We provide information about dialysis, help strengthen the partnership between patients and caregivers, tell lawmakers about the issues that matter to patients and provide a strong community for our members. As an organizational policy, DPC does not get involved with individual patient issues or complaints. Instead, we focus our efforts on advancing public policy changes that benefit all ESRD patients.
We offer special programs for friends of dialysis patients and for care providers. All membership types are free. To learn more about each membership type, see which membership you should apply for below.
