Nocturnal Dialysis Provides Alternative Treatment Option at Abramson Dialysis Center

For many patients, dialysis treatment is often a time-consuming, life changing process, requiring a visit to a treatment center three times a week for up to five hours each appointment. Many will need to make adjustments to their work schedules, home responsibilities, hobbies and activities. The Abramson Dialysis Center recognizes the many challenges that patients face and is now offering nocturnal dialysis to help mitigate the disruption to everyday life.

B'nai Brith Homecrest House (Silver Spring, MD):
The Resident Council of Homecrest House Hosts a Gala to Support the Edwards Building Fitness Room

B'nai B'rith Homecrest House, Resident Council hosted a Gala on June 13, 2015 called "In the Good Ole Summertime". It was Resident Council Board Member Dorothy Dow who first approached Executive Director Joseph Podson to see if Homecrest could have another gala. Dorothy thought that this would be a great idea because in February 2010 Homecrest had a gala for the Haiti earthquake and donated money to the At Risk Children's Foundation. Dorothy and the staff of Homecrest felt that we should raise money for the Edwards Personal Care Building and honor Mr. Harry Moskowitz one of the founders of Homecrest House.
