As a healthcare leader in Northeast Ohio, Centers for Dialysis Care takes great pride in the continued support of local partnerships and education programs that help to cultivate a healthier, more engaged community.
Established in 1995, Cleveland Minority Organ & Tissue Transplant Education Program (Cleveland MOTTEP) is the only organization in Ohio that provides community-based, culturally specific transplant, health and prevention education exclusively to the minority community.
Linda Kimble, executive director of Cleveland MOTTEP, has served the organization since 2011. Kimble’s journey with Cleveland MOTTEP started years before when she interned for the organization in the late 90s while completing her Master’s in Community Health Education at Cleveland State University.
“At that time, my mother recently had a stroke, and one of the things I wanted to accomplish with my career was to improve the quality of life for citizens, especially minority citizens,” Linda shared.
“Although Cleveland MOTTEP is a small organization by the numbers, we are a mighty organization in our power and we make a difference in the communities we serve,” stated Linda.
