ESRD NCC Peer Connection Calls

The ESRD National Coordinating Center (NCC) is hosting three national Peer Connection calls in the month of July which will focus on home dialysis, transplant, and caregiving.  The calls are an informal opportunity to ask questions, speak to, and learn from individuals who made the decision to dialyze at home and/or seek a kidney transplant. 

The call is operator assisted and intended only for patients and family members. The event will be recorded and made available on the NCC website after the call.
