President's Advancing American Kidney Health Initiative Has Stickman Bracing for the Best
Stickman's wide line of personal products for home dialysis patients will be essential for wave of new patients.
ARUNDEL, Maine, July 11, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Yesterday's announcement of President Trump's initiative aims to increase the number of new end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients who receive home dialysis and organ transplants to 80% by 2025.
"We've been waiting for something like this in the U.S. for decades. The current model for (in-center) dialysis is no longer sustainable and, quite honestly, I find in too many cases, cruel to patients," said Jean Clermont, president and founder of Stickman Dialysis Industries. "We've been supporting and championing home dialysis since I was a patient myself over 20 years ago. It's time for the U.S. to catch up to the rest of the world when it comes to home dialysis. We look forward to making life more comfortable for many more American dialysis patients, and our team is up to the challenge of increased production and R&D, right here in the USA."
