Truth in Transplant
My transplant advocacy is directed toward #truthintransplant—an essential basis from which to address the longstanding unfavorable positioning and underfunding of transplant research/science by NIH/FDA et al. I am an advocate for improving the quality of life and longevity of transplant recipients through personalized, modernized transplant care that moves beyond antiquated immunosuppressive drug regimens and excessive invasive tests/procedures that fail to sustain graft health/survival long term.
