Dr. Herman Jones
Dialysis patient on waiting list
Dr. Herman Jones, a 70-year-old activist, husband and father, has lived with high blood pressure for years. The disorder, also known as hypertension, often diminishes kidney function over time, and in Dr. Jones’ case, has left him in need of a new kidney.
Despite putting on a brave face for his family, Dr. Jones admits, “My energy level is low, and I can’t be as active as I’ve always been.” After he receives a transplant, Dr. Jones is looking forward to regaining his strength and physical health, as he loves outdoor activities and riding his bike. He also wants to continue his work as a social service and research consultant helping others, particularly traumatized children and teens, and in the community as a civil rights advocate.
