#Dialysis and Social Media

NKF !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.

About DevonTexas

I am a person with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) which means my kidneys don't work. Forty or so years ago that would have been a death sentence but today there is Dialysis which means I can be hooked up to a machine that will clean my blood as the kidneys should. Three days a week, I go to a center and have too very large needles stuck in my arm to remove and replace my blood as it passes through a process where it's cleaned and the fluid is removed, a process taking a little over four hours each time. I want to advance knowledge about dialysis so that other patients can learn from my experience and mistakes. We shouldn't have to reinvent the wheel, eh? There is so much to be learned and experienced about our predicament. There are vast resources available to support us and enrich our lives but many patients don't know about them. There are also many issues that we have to deal with whether we want to or not. So I blog about them. All comments are confidential until I approve them. If you don't want your comment public, let me know and I will respect that. So, feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy.
