Patrick O. Gee, Sr., PhD
Patrick Gee had been a peritoneal dialysis patient since December 2013. On April 21, 2017, Patrick received a kidney transplant at the Hume-Lee Transplant Center at the Medical College of Virginia/Virginia Commonwealth University. After spending 33 days in the hospital, four surgeries and a 47-day wait until his kidney began to function, Patrick is back to advocating for more comprehensive healthcare, patient engagement, community educational resources, and a better quality of life for kidney patients.
