Dr. Robin Eady was a patient at the dawn of the technology developed
in Seattle that made dialysis able to sustain life long-term. Forty-seven

OUR MISSION: RESEARCH
A collaboration between Northwest Kidney
Centers and UW Medicine, the Kidney Research
Institute studies questions that can make
tangible improvements in the lives of people
with kidney disease.
A 20-year-old on dialysis has the same cardiovascular risk as a healthy 80-year-old. Research is vital to improve kidney patients’ lives.
The Kidney Research Institute focuses on
improving detection, prevention and treatments
for kidney disease and its complications.

funding from the National Institutes of Health by year-end.

KaShawna Foster’s co-workers no longer do double takes when they see her dialysis equipment in the ofﬁce. She takes it wherever she goes.
KaShawna likes the ﬂexibility of her therapy. KaShawna Foster chose peritoneal dialysis because she’s a woman on the go
and PD doesn’t slow her down. She takes along supplies and gives herself therapy in her ofﬁce at Microsoft, at friends’ homes, in the car –
even at Safeco Field or on Mount Rainier.
Northwest Kidney Centers keeps people in the Seattle area alive with dialysis care, educates
the public about kidney health, and collaborates with UW Medicine in the Kidney Research
Institute. We are one of very few community-based, nonproﬁt dialysis providers in the country.
Founded in 1962, ours was the ﬁrst out-of-hospital dialysis program in the world and it is still
a model in the ﬁeld today. Our mission remains critical. One in seven American adults now has
chronic kidney disease, up 30 percent in the last decade.
