Kidney Courage Awards: A Day for Empowerment and Education is an opportunity to bring together anyone affected by kidney disease (pre-dialysis, dialysis, transplant, living donors, care givers and family members) to learn from each other on topics which concern the patient and their entire family.

Personal stories will be shared and medical professional will be on hand to educate attendees on real life issues faced by those affected by kidney disease. This open forum allows for patients, their friends and family members, to learn from experts and each other on topics related to kidney disease and real life. This event is presented by the National Kidney Foundation and welcomes all people impacted by CKD, dialysis and kidney transplantation.

New for 2013: the National Kidney Foundation will be working with individual nephrology, dialysis and transplant units to nominate patients to receive the Kidney Courage Awards. Patients or caregivers can be nominated for any reason the unit and staff would like them to be recognized. Awards will be distributed throughout the event.
