General Membership

What is the Dialysis Patient Citizens Community?

We are a non-profit organization of more than 35,000 dialysis and pre-dialysis patients and families joined together to help improve kidney patients’ quality of life. We provide information about dialysis care, tell our lawmakers about the issues that matter to patients, help strengthen the partnership between patients and caregivers and provide a strong community for our members.

We help members tell their story and share their concerns, provide tools and resources to help manage their health, and create a unified voice for reaching policymakers. Together we can help improve ourselves and the broader dialysis community.
