How the Kidney
Community is Involved
The American Association of Kidney Patients (AAKP) is one of the partners in HiLo. HiLo team members collaborate with AAKP patient ambassadors who provide the patient perspective. HiLo patient ambassadors are living with chronic kidney failure and very experienced with dialysis. By sharing their personal experiences with dialysis and living with a chronic disease, patient ambassadors help improve the research experience for all HiLo study participants.
