THE STORY:

I am very pleased to be able to run the 2015 Boston Marathon with Team BIDMC this year.  When I ran last year's Boston Marathon, I had thought it might well be my last marathon, but my knee really held up quite well through the training, and I after the race, I found myself wanting to run again!

This year, I will be running in support of Dr. Martin Pollack's Kidney Disease Research Fund at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.  Dr. Pollak's laboratory is doing exciting and important research on the genetic basis of kidney disease.  As a primary care doctor, I see the toll taken on patients by chronic kidney disease on a daily basis, and look forward to the day when we have effective ways to prevent it.  Here is a little more information about this issue:

Kidney Disease Research

The Renal Division Research Team has identified a reason for the high rate of kidney disease in people of African descent. Kidney disease is five times more likely to affect African Americans than other groups of people, and the team is actively working to alleviate this epidemic. This is a major public health problem and this research, which may lead to major advances in treatment, is unique to BIDMC. Dialysis is not a cure. Fewer than 40 percent of dialysis patients live more than five years. Rates of kidney failure are increasing and the cost to treat those patients continues to rise each year. In 2009, $42.5 billion was spent to provide care to those with kidney failure. Over the next three to five years, the Renal Division Research Team aims to use their findings to better understand, prevent, and treat kidney disease in African Americans. They plan to develop a multifaceted approach to solving this problem that will be highly visible and have a large impact on the lives of individuals and their families. 

I will be updating my blog from time to time if you are interested in how my training is going:

I appreciate your support, and look forward to running on Patriot's Day 2015!
