Kidney Community Emergency Response
An emergency can arise in so many ways, and if you are on dialysis you need to know what to do. Joan Thomas is the Kidney Community Emergency Response Program Director of the ESRD National Coordinating Center, and works with communities to provide dialysis if a center isn’t operational. She explains what people on dialysis need to know and have on hand, and the different communication and dietary strategies that ensure optimal health and survival if a disaster strikes.
