From the Editor: Mike Freeman is president of the Diabetes Action Network. In the following article he lists the facilities near our convention hotel that can provide dialysis to those who need the service. Arrangements should be made soon, so here is the information:

During this year's annual convention in Orlando, dialysis will be available. People requiring dialysis must have their local servicing unit set up the desired location well in advance.
