Inspired by Making Life Better for Those Living with Kidney Disease: Satellite Healthcare’s National Team at the NKF Kidney Walks
Satellite Healthcare teams made their way step-by-step through the U.S. participating in the NKF Kidney Walks.
More than 30 teams with almost 600 team members raised awareness and funds at 11 walks from California to New Jersey. These teams formed the Satellite Healthcare National Team lead by President and CEO Rick Barnett.
“Satellite Healthcare was founded on the mission that we could offer a full quality of life to those living with kidney disease. The Kidney Walks give us the opportunity to be a leader in the CKD community alongside NKF. Our National Team is a great representative of Satellite Healthcare’s mission and values based on community, respect and excellence,” said Rick.
Satellite Healthcare has been a strong supporter of NKF for more than 40 years thanks to the unwavering passion its founder Dr. Norman S. Coplon had for patients with kidney disease. Under the leadership of Dr. Coplon, Satellite sold anything and everything, including pom poms at sporting events, in support of NKF.
In honor of its founder, at each walk this year the Satellite Healthcare teams passed out pom poms.
Participating and providing multi-market support of the Kidney Walks is just one example of the not-for-profit’s philanthropy in the CKD community. Satellite Healthcare has a well-recognized, enduring commitment to philanthropy and the CKD community, from funding millions of dollars in research grants to sponsoring kidney walks nationwide.
Satellite is committed to advancing the standard of chronic kidney disease care so patients can enjoy a better life.
