IG Live – September 6th: Join DPC Education Center’s healthcare consultant, Dr. Velma Scantlebury, as she answers patients’ kidney questions on the latest episode of the podcast. Find out what happens if a living kidney donor needs a kidney later in life and what your doctor means if they say you have a “sleep kidney”. 

If the upcoming fall has you wondering what you should do for vaccinations, including the new COVID-19 booster, tune in to hear Dr. Scantlebury provide some advice for vaccine scheduling. Additionally, she touches on the importance of caretaker or family vaccines when living a kidney patient, as well as some heat safety tips if where you live hasn’t quite started to cool down year. Give us a listen, and if you have your own questions you’d like to have the doctor answer, tune in for our Live events on both Instagram and Facebook:
