Denying Home Treatments to Minority Patients is Not Okay
We were appalled to see the recent study findings demonstrating among more than 160,000 U.S. dialyzors that those of every ethnic minority were significantly less likely to be treated with home dialysis than whites. Is your clinic ruling people out as home candidates because of the way they look or talk? If so, our MATCH-D may help level the playing field. Give it a try! Everyone deserves a chance.
