COVID-19

Many have generated content around epidemiology and general preventive efforts, but we’ve taken a different approach. We've been focusing on tailored and targeted content for various high-risk and immunosuppressed populations (including kidney and transplant patients), and supporting local efforts in and around St. Louis.

With all the misinformation about COVID-19, we're excited to be a part of helping people understand the facts. Are you ready to partner to improve health and prevent the further spread of COVID-19 using of health literacy and clear communication? Send an email our way!

Doing everything you can during COVID-19: Kidney and transplant patient education

As a part of our Explore Transplant program, and in collaboration with other leading healthcare professionals, we developed a comprehensive kidney dialysis and transplant patient guide to answer frequently asked questions. In addition to the guide, we created social media content to promote the guide, and door signs for staying safe at home.

How to wear homemade cloth face masks and surgical face masks
