As highlighted last month, Dialysis Patient Citizens would like to reiterate our gratitude for all of your efforts to elevate the patient voice with policy makers in 2018. To say thanks, we would like to invite you to apply for our 2019 Advocacy Day!

We are very fortunate that we are able to bring dialysis patients to Washington, D.C. each year to meet with their elected officials. This provides advocates like you with the unique opportunity to make your voice heard on behalf of dialysis patients from your state in order to improve dialysis care. This year is no exception. We will meet with Members of Congress and their staff on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 with a comprehensive training the day before.

Last year we received a record number of applicants for our 2018 Advocacy Day Fly-in, and we hope to invite a greater number of advocates in 2019.

If you are interested in participating in our advocacy efforts, please fill out the online application by February 28, 2019. Selections will be made by the end of March, based on application quality, legislative priorities and prior involvement in DPC.
