The alumni publication of my alma mater included a nice profile of me (Mines Magazine Summer 2010). I especially appreciate their willingness to mention my plan to perform community outreach to help kidney patients find donors. The online version even included a correction about my participation in contact sports that I asked them not to bother to update. Incidentally, the photo that illustrates the story was taken at UWMC in June.

If you are a kidney patient looking for a donor, or are thinking of helping someone you know find a donor, check out the materials at Living Kidney Donors Network. That’s the organization I’m working with to create the kidney patient education program in Seattle, where I live.
