He believes the Constitution is as relevant today as it was the day it was signed. Straightforward and never wavering, he will represent the people as their equal peer, as our founding fathers intended. “For too long everyday Americans including senior citizens and small businesses have been ignored while special monied interests have had their way in Washington, DC.

Our 2nd guest is Margaret Ference. Senior Vice President, BB Credit & Ops Director, Huntington National Bank. The economic uncertainty sparked by the pandemic has highlighted the need for an increased financial opportunity for all people who are starting or growing their small businesses. Maggie Ference from Huntington National Bank will discuss the opportunities that exist for small businesses today, including support and funding for startups and especially for minority business owners.

America’s small businesses have been particularly hard hit during the pandemic. Even in its early weeks, February to April 2020, the number of active businesses plummeted by 22%, according to a report from the National Bureau of Economic Research. As states continue to see stay-at-home orders come and go, small businesses are still feeling the brunt of the pandemic. For those that have managed to stay afloat during this unprecedented time, what has helped them pivot and remain in business? And is now is the wrong time to consider starting a new business.

Our next guest is Hip-Hop Artist David Rush he is raising his voice to help 39 Million Americans with Chronic Kidney DIsease. He recorded songs with Pitbull, went on tour as his opening act and…has been battling Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) for over 14 years. Rush is now on a mission to educate people on CKD– especially minorities, as Black Americans are three times as likely to develop end-stage renal disease compared to White Americans. David’s first signs of trouble appeared when he was in high school, during a physical for football. High protein levels indicated poor kidney function, but it wasn’t until he was older that he discovered just how poorly his kidneys were functioning and needed dialysis. As CKD progresses, patients face an increased risk of potentially serious conditions, like anemia and hyperkalemia, that can make it more difficult to manage the disease.

David hopes to shed light on the gaps in care that Black Americans face within CKD, which is why he’s joining a campaign called Unfiltered Kidney Conversations; a program that empowers patients to have real, no-holds-barred conversations with their doctors by showing them the strength and honesty of others with similar health experiences. David will also be able to discuss his personal journey with CKD and how he’s been able to overcome the challenges he faced.

Joining David is Dr. Jessica Coleman, MD, Nephrology Specialist she will discuss how to better support patients who face this disease and how to increase awareness among minority communities. Dr. Coleman will be able to add a fresh perspective to a conversation centered around increasing awareness of CKD and associated conditions among minorities. She will also discuss how patients can have more meaningful conversations with their doctors about CKD and the symptoms they’re experiencing. https://www.unfilteredkidneyconvos.com/
