This is what Dialysis Patient Citizens wrote about the DPC gathering in DC last week. It summarizes it so very well. I don’t think they’ll will mind if I plagiarize their work…
Over 70 patients and family members and over 60 dialysis facility staff from 49 states (including AK and HI) were on Capitol Hill yesterday. We met with Members of Congress to express opposition to the proposed 9.4% cut to the Medicare dialysis program. We were able to talk to 212 offices! Wow!
My friend Jim Myers and I had a chance to meet and chat. Here’s a pic of Jim with one of his Senators in Congress. On Twitter you can join the effort using #StopESRDCuts and by liking the DPC Facebook page.
Our first meeting was with Robert Vega from Rep. Kenny Marchant’s (R-Tx) office. Here’s pics of that (More later)
