The DPC Support Group is a unique program that offers real time support and education to chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients at all stages of the illness, as well as support for their family and friends. It can be helpful for those adjusting to kidney disease to:

• Have someone to listen to them
• Gain confidence in living with kidney disease
• Feel more in control of their life
• Provide fellowship and community for those on home dialysis
• Gain tips and encouragement from both someone who has personal experience and from a healthcare professional.

This program is a telephone group experience with two facilitators: a person living with CKD and a healthcare professional. The program is open to any person living with kidney disease and their family members who have a telephone. It provides a safe place to discuss aspects of living with kidney disease.

The group meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 3:00 pm Eastern for one hour.

Our next call will be on Tuesday, February 8th, 2022 at 3:00 pm Eastern.

Our guest speaker for February will be Dr. Sidney J. Swanson, MD. Dr. Swanson, III, M.D., FACS, is the surgical director for the Kidney Transplant Program at Christiana Care. He is a board-certified urologist who completed residency in 1989 and kidney/pancreas fellowship training in 1991. From that time until his retirement in 2005, he had been the UNOS certified surgical director of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center Kidney/Pancreas Transplant Program.
