Why this Program is Important

northwestern-medicine-dinee-simpson-md-aatap

Understanding kidney and liver disease and their treatment options is key to choosing what is best for you. Understanding our diverse communities and their barriers to good health is key for a hospital to offer excellent healthcare. AATAP is a program built for the Black community, based on feedback and conversations with Black community members about the challenges of navigating a complex diagnosis and the healthcare system.

Our goals for AATAP:

  • Improve access to resources that help African American patients navigate the transplant process and achieve better health through transplantation
  • Continue to be a trusted destination for transplantation among African American patients, and improve trust in healthcare overall
