Culturally Targeted Education on Living Kidney Donation
- Principal Investigator:
AI/ANs have the highest prevalence of Type 2 diabetes of any U.S. racial minority. They also have a high rate of end-stage renal disease. Living kidney donation and transplantation (LKDT) could save lives, but there are many cultural, geographic, and economic barriers to learning about it. This project will use an interpersonal approach and story-telling to present LKDT information. The target audience will be AI/AN people on renal dialysis who are eligible for transplant.
