I am checking for a patient. I work in dialysis. She is new to dialysis and the Rochester area and looking for a support group.

@judyaca Although this is not an in-person support group, I "attend" virtually, one of the support groups hosted by Renal Support Network at rsnhope.org. The president and founder, Lori Hartwell, is based in Los Angeles. She is a kidney patient for over 50 years. This might be a good option?

@judyaca, I hope you will introduce your patient to Mayo Clinic Connect and the Kidney group. In particular, I think she might enjoy the discussion here:
– What's your experience with dialysis? Give & get support here https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/support-for-dialysis-patients/

She will receive a warm welcome, support and knowledge exchange.
