Patient Ambassador Spotlight

DPC’s Patient Ambassadors play a critical role in advancing one of our core missions—to elevate the patient voice with policy makers. Our Patient Ambassadors serve as leaders in their communities and dialysis facilities to help us engage others. They often organize meetings or dialysis facility tours to better inform elected officials on the challenges facing dialysis patients.

We very much appreciate everything they do, and try to Spotlight some of their efforts here.
