As a new Congress begins, we need kidney community members to remind their elected officials about the importance of supporting policies that will help our community and promote better kidney health for all Americans. These priorities include:
- Increased funding for kidney disease awareness, early detection, screening, research, and innovation
- Eliminating discrimination against living organ donors in the procurement of life, disability, and long-term care insurance
- Improving access to home dialysis for patients that want to use it
- Promoting additional oversight, transparency, and accountability in our country’s organ procurement and transplantation system
Please take a moment to personalize your letter with your kidney disease story to make your message even more impactful!
