      How to Answer

      DaVita is best known as one of the largest kidney care providers in the United States. Talk to the interviewer about the areas of healthcare that bring passion to you. Is there a particular issue that you would carry more public awareness to if you could? Be sure to add value to what DaVita is doing as well. If you have a connection to their cause, this is a great time to mention it.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "There are so many healthcare issues that I am passionate about, but if I could choose one, I wish that the general public were more aware of the signs and dangers of undiagnosed childhood diabetes. Of course, kidney disease is also a major concern for me which is part of the reason I applied to work with DaVita. My aunt passed from kidney failure last year, much too young. What you are doing here at DaVita is remarkable."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "This is a very tough question as there are so many underfunded, and worthy, healthcare issues. I am going to go with one of my biggest areas of interest and research. If I could increase public awareness on any healthcare related issue, I would choose pancreatic cancer. Yes, cancer does receive a lot of awareness; however, pancreatic cancer does not. This year, over 53,000 people in the USA will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer nearly 80% will die from the disease - both men and women."

      "I wish that the general public were more aware of early detection of kidney disease and more aware of the signs and dangers of undiagnosed diabetes in young adults. My best friend died of kidney failure at 30. She was too young, and I think that could have been prevented or her life could have been prolonged with dialysis."

      "I would choose to educate patients on how to control high BP and type 2 diabetes as these are the leading cause of end-stage kidney failure. Uncontrolled BP was the main reason my mother went into kidney failure and now needs dialysis. With proper nutrition and exercise, this could of being prolonged."
