Patient Subject Matter Experts (PSMEs)

The IPRO ESRD Network Program works with committed and informed patients who advise and assist in promoting quality of care for their fellow patients. These patients serve as Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and assist the network in developing patient-centered projects to enhance the development of our Network activities at the state and national levels.
