Starting a Support Group - kidney talk

Support is crucial when you have kidney disease and often RSN is asked how to create and maintain a successful support group. Lori Majopian called RSN and asked for guidance on how to start a support group in her area. We decided to record the call. In this interview Lori Hartwell provides ideas on what is involved, how to get started, tips for success and answers the callers questions. Peer to peer support is very important, and considering starting a support group in your area can help provide knowledge, experience and most importantly hope.
