ACE Dialysis Health
Imperative for Access, Choice, and Equity

The ACE Dialysis Health Imperative for Access, Choice, and Equity is designed to inform African Americans about dialysis options available for those living with kidney disease and how to access the best services locally based on their needs. The project is a partnership between the NAACP, the Alliance for Home Dialysis, and sponsor Baxter International.
