These events provide an opportunity for dialysis patients and their caregivers to receive education, share their experiences, and have their questions answered as they network with one another on their dialysis journeys. In 2013, our Beyond Dialysis series transitioned from a single event to multiple events held throughout National Kidney Foundation Serving Maryland and Delaware’s service area. In 2014-15, we expanded and improved the program to include four patient education conferences throughout our service area that focused on patients and their families being informed, inspired and engaged. Over 500 patients and family members participated in our Beyond Dialysis program last year!
A big thank you to all of our speakers at the Beyond Dialysis Patient Conferences! Your support helped make these events a great success!
