New forums for April

There are two new challenges for you to join. I do not like to change these too often - as I think it is a pain to remove them and add the new ones on my "Other goals" page. We have a few new topics also.

Happy April Team! Keep Loving Your Kidneys.

Dear Patient and Family Council Members:

Whole Living magazine is featuring women who have made positive health transformations in their January 2011 issue. The editor is specifically looking for a woman of color in her 30s who has somehow improved her risk for diabetes or even pre-diabetes through exercise, eating healthy or other changes. Since there is a hereditary link, it could be someone who is related to a kidney transplant recipient or dialysis patient. If you or someone you know fit this description, please email contact information immediately to Ellie Schlam at ellies@kidney.org.

Thank you,
National Kidney Foundation
