Dialysis at National Convention

by Ed Bryant

During this year's annual convention of the National Federation of the Blind in Atlanta, Saturday, June 30 to Friday, July 6, dialysis will be available. Individuals requiring dialysis must have a transient patient packet and physician's statement filled out prior to treatment. Conventioneers must have their unit contact the desired location in the Atlanta area for instructions well in advance. The convention headquarters will be in the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, 265 Peachtree Center Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia 30303.
