Me, too! Campaign

Increasing Transplant Referral Campaign for Patients 65 Years of Age and Older

Research has proven that kidney transplantation offers advantages over dialysis for most ESRD patients in both quality of life and survival. Network 4 transplant rates show that many fewer patients aged 65 and older are referred to a transplant center to learn about their transplant options.

The purpose of this campaign is to focus attention on improving an identified age disparity for transplant patients in Network 4. Facilities will be asked to take part in the Me, too! Campaign. The goal of this campaign is to aid those patients 65 years of age and older to take the first step and be referred to a transplant center.
