Curtis Warfield is a Senior Quality Analyst for the State of Indiana. In 2012 Warfield was diagnosed with stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease due to Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis. In January of 2016, he received a kidney from a living donor—his daughter's sorority sister. Warfield has since given back to the community by bringing awareness to both kidney disease and the need for organ donors, with a focus on people of color and low income. He is a peer counselor with the National Kidney Foundation, and a member of its Kidney Advocacy Committee; an ambassador and Midwest representative with the American Association of Kidney Patients; a patient advocate and presenter with Indiana Donor Network; an ambassador with United Network of Organ Sharing; and an ambassador with Chronic Disease Coalition. Warfield has a Bachelor of Science degree from Central Michigan University, and a Master of Science in Management from Oakland City University.
These are the broad terms we use to categorize our funded research studies; specific diseases or conditions are included within the appropriate larger category. Note: not all of our funded projects focus on a single disease or condition; some touch on multiple diseases or conditions, research methods, or broader health system interventions. Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them.
