S.L.E. Lupus Foundation Director of Social Services, Jessica Rowshandel, MSW, reported that a participant called after the Tour to say:

When I was at the Staten Island Hospital Tour [on Kidney Health], I realized I had some of the symptoms of kidney damage—and asked my doctor to run some tests. Turns out I have stage 1 kidney damage. I am grateful to know about it, and relieved that it is still just mild!
