May Is National Mental Health Awareness Month

by | May 1, 2024 | Mental Health, Patient Education, Resources

In recognition of National Mental Health Awareness Month, Balboa Nephrology participated in a conversation with the nonprofit organization ReMend about the emotional challenges faced by people living with kidney disease. These challenges can include the financial burden, dietary adjustments, and significant lifestyle changes.

Cynthia Polis, RN, Education Nurse and Financial Counselor and CovER Department Supervisor, David Ordaz both with Balboa United participated in a discussion exploring the psychological challenges faced by patients. We were fortunate to also have Dr. William Adams, Behavioral Health Medical Director at Evergreen Nephrology, share his expertise.  Watch the Kidney Conversations with ReMend webinar here.

Please share this post with your friends and family who may be affected by kidney disease. Together, we can raise awareness and support one another.
