Health & Awareness is the ears, eyes and voice for those dealing with health care disparities.
One of Health & Awareness's goals is to educate indiviuals and explaind why honesty, comply with the health care providers orders, encourage health management in the early stage.
Express the important of having a health provider that take an intereste and communicate with them, one that treat them like an individual.
Most important - if a health care provider, does not have time to explain procedures, the purpose of test ordered and does not talk a preventionheart - GREAT A NEW HEALTH CARE PROVIDER. These are sign of health care disparity treatment.

We believe "Knowledge is power & Sharing knowledge is Powerful"
As the Founder, I am confident the more we learn about our system and what works best for us, the less illness we will suffer. When we choose to take advantage of the prevention strategies that's best for us, the better the results in slowing down the progression of kidney disease and other chronic disease.
The more medicine you take for long periods of time, the greaters risk of side effects causing additional medical problems. "Manage your health".
Prevention is part Health Care Provider & Part Knowing your Body "Common Sense"
People are encourage to keep a journal of what they eat and what affects it have on your bodys, everything from how you sleep, pain, constipation, medication, etc. Your body reacts to what going into our mout, if we pay attention.
Our Founder is passionate about helping others avoid the preventable health mistakes he any many like him made due to the lack of knowledge and prevention treatment. WallACE spent eight years on dialysis, during that time he took an interest in his health and intered over 100 dialysis patients, dialysis nurse, and kidney doctors when he discovered simular risk factors and lack of prevention and knowledge on the patients part. The Governor's fist lady and Ellen Sudderth encouraged him to put the informatin in a health guide book for those he was unable to reach. "Why Not Me" has been a reward to thousands in helping them better understand the important in taking an active role in their health care treatment and decrease health care disparity when patients are educated and their health providers work together. Not to mention, when patients are educated, they are better patients.
