Home Dialyzors United President, Nichole Jefferson, Welcomes Patrick Gee to Professional Advisory Board
Dallas, TX. Home Dialyzors United (HDU) welcomes veteran patient advocate Patrick Gee to its Professional Advisory Board. Patrick has spent his life as a Community Activist, fighting against systemic issues such as poverty, social and racial injustices, criminal justice reform, and education reform. Patrick worked for the Virginia Department of Corrections (1988-2008 retired) and the Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice (1993-2008), where he acquired several awards.
In April 2013, Patrick was diagnosed with Stage 3b End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) and soon began doing Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) in December 2013. On April 21, 2017, Patrick received a kidney transplant. Because of his experience, Patrick is passionate about speaking on behalf of the underserved, undervalued, and disenfranchised communities of color.
Patrick began his collegiate years at Howard University before transferring to the University of Richmond. He received a Bachelor’s and Master of Science in Criminal Justice, emphasizing Public Administration from the University of Richmond, Richmond, VA. He also has a Doctor of Philosophy in Justice, Law, & Criminology from American University, Washington, DC. Patrick is also an Ordained Minister at Mountain Movers Ministry, Richmond, VA.
John Bayton, HDU Director of Strategic Operations and Director of the Professional Advisory Board said, “The knowledge, experience, and foresight that Patrick brings to the table will be a cornerstone to HDU’s success.”
The Professional Advisory Board has a strategic role in overseeing the mission and vision of HDU. The professional expertise of our Advisory Board Members also guides HDU in creating goals and objectives that impact the home dialysis community.
HDU is excited to embrace the challenging opportunities to exchange knowledge and listen to the patient voice as we change the status quo for dialyzors in this country.
