Petition to improve dialysis care

Sign Petition to Improve Dialysis Care

Dear NKF Take Action volunteers: The members of the Kidney Care Partners (KCP) coalition, including the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), believe that there may be an opportunity in the near future for the U.S. Congress to pass a bill to improve the quality of care for people on dialysis. However, since this is an election year, we only have a short time frame to reach lawmakers on Capitol Hill. As someone touched by chronic kidney disease, you can raise awareness and ask your representatives to take action this year by signing KCP’s electronic petition to Congress. If you are interested in learning more, please go to http://www.capitolconnect.com/kidneycare/default.aspx to review the petition. Be sure to choose NKF as the organization referring you when you sign the petition at the bottom of the registration box.
For more information about the Kidney Care Quality and Education Act, the basis for improvements listed in the petition, click here to view our factsheet . We will be sending updates and actions in the coming weeks as this issue progresses.
The NKF is working with KCP to draw attention to an electronic petition calling on Congress to pass improvements for dialysis care in the upcoming Medicare bill. The petition is being coordinated by KCP, but names and contact information will only be utilized in association with this petition; the petition organizers will not share, sell, or rent information about individuals who sign the petition.
Thank you for your interest and support. We look forward to working with you to build a stronger voice for kidney patients in Congress.
John Davis, CEO
National Kidney Foundation
