Arranging Your Life When Everything Goes to Health!

When Jane McClure and I wrote "Arranging Your Life When Dialysis Comes Home: The Underwear Factor," it became clear that our concepts could be generalized to an audience beyond the Kidney Community. Many people deal with chronic medical conditions in one way or another. Whether that means healing a broken limb, or dealing with an elderly parent, chronic health care in the home touches all of us.

Dealing with a chronic medical condition changes the way we live. Yet, we find that people spend more time preparing for a new baby than they do for other life-changing medical circumstances.

As Jane and I worked on "Arranging Your Life When Dialysis Comes Home," we realized that if you can manage Kidney Dialysis at home, you can manage just about anything!

So, we are presenting a seminar entitled "Arranging Your Life When Everything Goes to Health!"

Our first seminar will be presented at the Bainbridge Island Public Library on Sunday, July 11th from 1 to 4 pm. There will be a $25 fee for this seminar, with scholarships available.

Later seminars will be presented in Seattle at the Queen Anne Square Building at 200 W. Mercer.

If you would like to attend the July 11th seminar on beautiful Bainbridge Island, please contact me by email at or by mail at 200 W. Mercer #104; Seattle, WA 98119 -- we'll send a brochure.

Do you know of others who might benefit from such a seminar: church groups, caregiver support groups, etc.? Please feel free to pass this on to anyone who might benefit.

Take care. Linda Gromko, MD
