The problem of creating and then protecting access to dialysis is especially acute in Detroit, where an estimated more than one-half of Michigan's current 12,000 kidney dialysis patients now live.

For these urban dialysis recipients – most of whom develop CKD as a result of severe diabetes, also a major pubic health threat in Detroit – establishing and then protecting a continuing "lifeline" that permits safe blood-flow between the dialysis machine and the patient's cardiovascular system is crucial to a successful outcome.
