My friend, Jim Myers, was a guest of the National Kidney Foundation and their Advocacy in Action Blog on the topic: “Why We Need to Be Active on Social Media”. He makes some very good points about the effective use of social media to advance several aspects of kidney disease. You can read his post here.
By the way, sign up for the newsletters from the The National Kidney Fund. There’s a sign-up box near the bottom of the screen, on the right. Just below that you also can sign-up for various other newsletters or CLICK on THIS.
No group does more for kidney patients of all types (CKD, ESRD, Transplant, etc.) than the National Kidney Foundation. Their annual walks raise money and, more importantly, raise awareness. They also host annual informational meetings in several metropolitan areas in the spring and early summer months.
Visit the NKF website and take a look around. Remember, the more informed you are, the better you are. Dealing with kidney disease is not easy when you don’t understand what’s going on.
