Why do you want to GET LOUD FOR KIDNEYS?
I get loud because I am LOUD! That is my manner of speaking, advocating and persuading. I fit the mold Get Loud for Kidneys has cast. I believe it will be a productive partnership.
Any Kidney Awareness Efforts You're Working On?
I have an interest in working with pediatric patients and raising awareness concerning their unique issues as an under-represented group that may be the fastest growing group of kidney patients in the USA.
What do you want to see change?
Anything that hurts kidney patients. The 36 month coverage of immunosuppression medication rule for transplant patients and the under representation of pediatric kidney patients. I'm just starting to learn about Veteran's struggles. I'm a big social media advocate!
James has worked with Congressman Pete Visclosky. Pete co-sponsored the Living Donor Protection Act and the Early Kidney Disease Detection and Treatment Act. His state Senator Lonnie Randolph helped to get a proclamation signed for Indiana declaring April 9th as Living Donor Day. He works closely with the National Kidney Foundation to raise awareness and money for more progress in the treatment of kidney disease.
