5/13 – Dialysis Transportation: The Intersection of Transportation and Healthcare webinar

This interactive forum provides invaluable resources at your fingertips and the chance to interact with professionals and advocates who share your goals. Post your questions and answer questions to help us create lasting, healthy communities in Illinois.

Transportation challenges from the perspective of transit agencies, nephrology social workers and dialysis patients
An introduction to the Community Data Tool developed for the report
