Kidney & Liver Disease Patient Education & Support
The Coachella Valley Support Group, a program of the FAIR Foundation, provides emotional and educational support, referral information and strong peer support.
Leading doctors and other healthcare professionals in the treatment of liver and kidney disease are regularly invited guest speakers.
FAIR supports the Acuity Circle Model for the allocation of livers to candidates within 150, 250, or 500 nautical miles (nm) of donor hospitals before offering them nationally to allow for efficient placement of donor organs and to avoid organ wastage.
