Blum Named Chair of Board for Local Chapter of National Kidney Foundation

Shook, Hardy & Bacon Philadelphia Partner Joe Blum has been named the Chair of the Board of Directors for the National Kidney Foundation chapter serving the Delaware Valley. Blum serves as the Chair from June 2014 to April 2016.

Blum’s son was born with a birth defect in his kidneys that required a controversial kidney transplant at the age of one.

When the family had to temporarily relocate for the transplant surgery, the National Kidney Foundation helped provide housing near the hospital. Blum says that the foundation has always been incredibly supportive, and he is encouraged by their research.
