Authors Luncheon Event Chair
“My mother was a dialysis patient and an early kidney transplant recipient, so I know first-hand how kidney disease can change the lives of individuals and their families. I am proud to serve as the Authors Luncheon Event Chair for a second year, and as a former NKF Board Member for nearly two decades. I support the NKF in her memory, and invite you to join me a we make strides together in the fight against kidney disease.”
