On October 28, 2014, the American Association of Kidney Patients will sponsor a AAKP HealthLine conference call on “Working with Kidney Disease.” If it’s possible, working while managing your chronic kidney disease has many benefits both financially and socially/mentally. Learn from Mary Beth Callahan, ACSW, LCSW, a leading health care professional on employment and vocational rehabilitation, as she discusses…
- How to remain working
- How to incorporate dialysis treatments into a work schedule
- Re-entry into the workforce post-transplant
- Effective communication with your employer
- Your rights as a patient
The call will also feature a patient speaker who will share their experiences and offer tips and advice on working with kidney disease.
