Peter Woods finds that being a co-investigator for a PCORI study is very rewarding. The study is called Prepare Now. It deals with educating patients and family members about dialysis. Woods has been a dialysis patient for five years and then received a kidney transplant. He wants to share his knowledge and experiences related to everything he has gone through. He hopes his experience can help someone else who is facing dialysis. Woods holds a Bachelor of Science in business. He was a New York Police Department Sergeant who was a first responder at 9/11. After retirement, he became ill from exposure to toxins at Ground Zero.
Health Conditions Health Conditions 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. View Glossary
